AEDs (Automated External Defibrillator)
An AED, automated external defibrillator, is a life-saving device. They are used to help those experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. It's a sophisticated, yet easy-to-use, medical device that can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
The University of Notre Dame collaborates with Cardiac Science to offer public access AEDs on our campus. Our AED program is an integral part of the University's commitment to the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and guests.
There are Powerheart G3 and G5 units located across campus. Cardiac Science, is part of the ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company. Both AEDs are made for novice first responders and feature voice and text screen coaching steps to facilitate you during usage. The machine will prompt you to call 911, provide compressions, breaths, and if shocks are required.
To request information on how to purchase an AED on campus, please contact Notre Dame Fire Department at 574-631-6200 or email us. We will be happy to discuss the products, purchasing options, maintenance agreements, placement, and training opportunities.
