AED Information

Montclair State University recently installed Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) in all of its main campus buildings. These AEDs are used in emergencies when someone does not have a pulse and is not breathing. AEDs are used to correct electrical problems in the heart.

When Should They Be Used?

Automatic External Defibrillators should only be used in a situation when someone is unconscious, not breathing and does not have a pulse, and in conjunction with CPR. If there is ever any doubt if the person has a pulse or is breathing, these machines can be used as well.

How Do I Use an AED?

All AEDs on campus are equipped with easy to follow voice instructions that start when the AED lid is opened. The AED will begin to analyze a person when the AED pads are attached to them.

If you are in a situation on campus where someone does not have a pulse or is not breathing, please follow these steps:

  • Call 911 or Campus Police.
  • Remove the AED from the wall unit (an alarm will sound) and open the lid.
  • Open and apply the AED pads that are connected to the machine.
  • Follow the voice instructions provided by the AED unit.
  • Begin or continue to administer CPR when the AED instructs you.
