Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

 

Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) are important assets in reducing the risk of death from sudden cardiac arrest. An AED is a device with pads that are attached to the victim’s chest to assess the heart rhythm and, if needed, automatically recommends whether or not to deliver a shock to the person’s heart. A person who has just gone into sudden cardiac arrest is in urgent need of defibrillation to save their life.

AEDs are placed throughout campus and in all Campus Police vehicles so early defibrillation to victims is available while waiting for emergency medical services (EMS) to arrive on the scene. APSU Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) oversees the AED program on campus. APSU faculty and staff interested in being trained in the use of AEDs should contact EHS at 6103 or the Physical Plant at 7456 to make training arrangements. EHS provides CPR/AED/First Aid training certified by the American Red Cross annually in August. This training is available to all APSU faculty and staff as well as students if there is space available.
