Public Access to Defibrillation Program (AED)

This online training will familiarize you with the Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) that have been installed in all campus buildings to be used during cardiac arrest events. It will provide an overview of cardiac emergency preparedness to help you understand what you can do to assist someone in the event of a cardiac emergency.

Running Time: 20 minutes

Every day in the United States 850 people die from cardiac arrest. Survival rates are dramatically increased when CPR is started immediately and when an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is used. The University at Buffalo has installed AED devices in all campus buildings. All of our employees need to become familiar with the AED devices, know where to find them, and understand the steps to take in case of a cardiac emergency.
