Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Program
According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is a significant health issue affecting nearly 8 percent of all Americans and resulting in nearly 350,000 deaths each year. While several electrical abnormalities can result in sudden cardiac arrest, the majority begin with ventricular fibrillation. Rapid treatment of ventricular fibrillation, through the application of a controlled electrical shock, is essential for survival. AEDs provided this controlled electrical shock.
The University's AED Program is managed by the Risk Management / Environmental Safety and Health (RM/EHS) Office with oversight from Health Services. It is designed to meet ACOEM’s Guidelines for the AED Use in Workplace Setting and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Guidelines for Public Access Defibrillation Programs in Federal Facilities. The program also satisfies State of Georgia recommendations pertaining to the acquisition and use of an AED.
