Automated External Defibrillator(AED)

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 Operatives  and a number of AED units are deployed across the campus in the following key locations: View a map of the defibs on campus
