Abstract:

The objective of this research is to clarify empirically about the relationship of a diffusion of a use of Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and social capital. If AED are continually not utilized by bystanders in an effective manner, then a large amount of public expense which is supplied to an installation and training course of AED is wasteful. In this research, the hypothesis that rich social capital raises the consciousness to a use of AED was formed. As a methodology, the questionnaire to 1000 ordinary citizens was carried out. In conclusion, the effort towards rich social capital is useful to improvement in the ratio of lifesaving by using AED.
