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 (AED): 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.
