Automated External Defibrillator

Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are devices designed to restore the heart’s normal rhythm in the event of cardiac arrest. AEDs can be found within buildings throughout campus. Decals posted on building entrances will indicate if and where the AED can be found. Training is not required to use an AED, a recorded voice will provide step by step instructions, however, EH&S offers Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and AED classes.
