The goal of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to increase the rate of survival of people who have sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs make it possible for trained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services. The map of AEDs on the Corvallis Campus is below.
The EH&S Department will assist AED owners with program management. EH&S will:
• Review AED program applications submitted by departments or units.
• Assist AED owners with programmatic content and selection of an AED.
• Identify buildings/areas where AED’s are required in public assembly locations and inspect those units.
• Maintain and provide an inventory of AED locations on campus.
