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.
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.
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.
In addition to being located in all Montclair State Police cars and Emergency Medical Services ambulances, AEDs can be found in the following locations:
