Is the Avive AED fully automatic or semi-automatic? What does this mean?

The Avive  AED is fully automatic, so when deemed appropriate, it will deliver a shock on its own. This means that the device will analyze the patient’s heart rhythm, and if a shock is advised, the AED will say so audibly and instruct the bystanders to stand back with no physical contact with the victim and deliver a shock on its own.
