An AED at a university or college can improve college campus safety and even save a life. A university / college campus AED program empowers your school to respond quickly when sudden cardiac arrest strikes.
College AED ProgramsNo college or university safety program is complete without an accessible AED for cardiac defibrillation. With AEDs in your college campus safety program, you can help sudden cardiac arrest victims of any age and fitness level, including seemingly healthy young athletes. A college / university AED program protects the lives of college students, university staff, and campus visitors from SCA – one of the world’s leading causes of death.
AEDs for Colleges and UniversitiesAEDs in schools are becoming commonplace – a college or university should be no exception. In an SCA emergency, every minute that goes by without defibrillation means the chances for successful resuscitation drop by 10 percent. A quick response without an AED on campus is extremely difficult. Precious time ticks away as you wait for emergency rescuers to arrive, locate, and prep the patient.
Colleges with isolated classrooms, spread out campuses, athletic fields, and dormitories can make a timely response even more difficult. Why risk it?
