The primary goal of the UL AED Scheme is to assist in the case of on-site suspected cardiac arrest amongst UL students, staff and visitors. Automated External Defibrillator: A computerised medical device that analyses heart rhythm to detect cardiac arrest and delivers an electric shock to the heart if necessary. Cardiac Arrest: A significant life-threatening event when a person's heart stops or fails to produce a pulse. The university maintains a panel of suitably Trained AED operatives and a number of AED units are deployed across the campus in the following key locations:
Student Medical Centre (Block C Level M)
Finance - Room A2-030
The locations have been chosen as both strategic and reasonably secure. There is a telephone beside each AED. Each AED location is identified by prominent signage. Each AED unit is located in a wall mounted cabinet of a distinctive type. The cabinet contains the AED unit and a list of AED trained operatives with telephone numbers.
