What and where are Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) on campus?
An AED is a lightweight, portable device that make it possible for trained individuals (lay rescuers) to respond to a medical emergency where defibrillation is required. An AED can be made part of an emergency response program that also includes 9-1-1 and cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The components of an emergency response plan along with proper training play a critical part in improving the odds of survival from sudden cardiac arrest.
The University of North Dakota Police Department is the primary provider of automated external defibrillator services campus-wide.
However, buildings and programs may purchase and deploy additional AEDs if specific requirements are met. For more information refer to Policy 6.15, Automated External Defibrillators by visiting http://und.edu/finance-operations/_files/docs/6-15-aed.pdf or contact the Office of Safety at 777-3341.
In addition, the Office of Safety is requesting that all UND departments and affiliates who have an AED in their possession submit the following information (per Policy 6.15, Automated External Defibrillators) to email@example.com by May 15, 2018:
Contact Person, Department Responsible, Building, Room, Make, and Serial#
The Office of Safety will keep records of all AEDs on campus, and will make a list of AED locations available to the emergency response agencies in the region that have a shared responsibility to provide emergency medical services to UND.
