According to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Transport and the Beijing Municipal Health Commission, the AED installation project will be conducted in three stages. The whole project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2022, and by that time AED equipment will be available at all subway stations in Beijing, and more than 80 percent of front-line subway personnel will be trained to get a Certificate for Red Cross First Aid so as to use AEDs in the right way.

The second stage will be completed by the end of 2021, covering 229 subway stations on 10 metro lines, improving the AED coverage rate in metro stations to 84 percent. The third stage will involve 65 subway stations on 5 metro lines, reaching 100 percent AED coverage in Beijing's subway stations. The first stage will include Lines No. 1, No. 2, No. 4, No. 13, Daxing Line, Daxing Airport Line, and Yanfang Line.

AEDs can automatically recognize abnormal heart rhythms and deliver shock defibrillation. In a life-threatening cardiac arrest event in a public place, the correct use of an AED and cardiopulmonary resuscitation during the "golden four minutes" for life saving can greatly improve the effect of pre-hospital first aid and achieve the purpose of saving lives and reducing injuries.
