AEDs and their locations on the CCU campus
AEDs or Automated External Defibrillators are devices used in conjunction with CPR (Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation) to keep a person who is having a heart attack alive until advanced medical care is available. These are not stand alone devices they will prompt the user to do CPR when a shock is not required. Both CPR and the AED are needed to give the victim of a heart attack the best chance of survival.
To be prepared to use an AED and to help a person having a heart attack the rescuer needs instruction in CPR and AED use. This instruction is available from the local chapter of the American Red Cross and the local American Heart Association.
Here on campus American Heart Association CPR/AED and First Aid trainingis available from Enviromental Health and Safety. The classes are taught every 2 months and are posted on the Training, Development and Service Excellence web page
