Automatic External Defibrillator Program

Automatic External Defibrillator Program

An automated external defibrillator or AED is a portable electronic device that automatically diagnoses the potentially life threatening cardiac symptoms in a patient, and is able to treat them through defibrillation -- the application of electrical therapy which stops the arrhythmia, allowing the heart to reestablish an effective rhythm.

AED's are designed to be simple to use for the layman, and the use of AEDs is taught in many first aid, first responder and basic life support level CPR classes.

AED's are supplied in designated CSUEB police vehicles and installed in various locations on the Hayward and Concord campuses.
