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