Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)-Environmental Health & Safety - Carnegie Mellon University

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) Locations

AEDs are devices designed to restore the heart to its normal rhythm in the event of cardiac arrest. This condition can and has occurred in people of all ages. The university has installed AEDs at numerous locations throughout campus. Buildings containing AEDs are identified with a decal on main entrance doors.

To use an AED it is simply a matter of opening the case. A recorded voice will direct you step-by-step on actions to be taken.
