An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) may be used during sudden cardiac arrest. An AED can shock the heart back into normal rhythm by means of an electric current. Employees may learn more about AEDs by completing a CPR & AED training course. The following table shows locations of AED on campus. The associated links display pictures of each location. For more information on specific AEDs used on campus, please scroll to the bottom of the page.
For your convenience, the video below demonstrates the proper use of the Cardiac Science AED. Other AED brands operate in a similar manner.
Please note that the American Heart Association and the manufacturers of AEDs strongly recommend that AEDs are used only by trained individuals. To complete the CPR and AED training course at UNLV, please contact Risk Management & Safety at 895-4226.
