Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) - are used to administer an electric shock to a person who is having a cardiac arrest. AEDs are designed to allow non-medical personnel to save lives.


How does it work?

Two pads connected to the defibrillator are placed on the patient’s chest.  A computer inside the AED analyses the patient’s heart rhythm and determines if a shock is required to save the victim. If a shock is required, the AED uses voice instructions to guide the user through saving the person’s life.


What training is involved?

AEDs require specialist training and participants must have basic life support training completed prior to commencing AED training. Trained AED personnel are available throughout each campus, their contact details are available at each of the AED locations and on the health & safety noticeboards.

AEDs are loacted as follows:
