WesternU has placed AEDs within minutes of any campus location and a growing number of WesternU campus community members have been trained in CPR and AED use. When used in combination with CPR, a person’s chance of surviving a cardiac event can be greatly increased. Everyone should know where the nearest AED is to their location.
Although formal training is preferred, anyone can use an AED. The link below provides a summary of what to do if someone suddenly collapses, including a link to a video training simulation on how to use an AED.
