Automated External Defibrillator
An Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is used to treat victims who experience sudden cardiac arrest. Multiple groups on campus own and maintain AEDs. The University maintains AEDs in a state of readiness for public access as well so the general public can respond to a cardiac emergency. AEDs available to the general public use voice prompts to provide instruction and will automatically deliver a shock only if needed.
The University's AED Program is managed and maintained by the Notre Dame Fire Department (NDFD). Questions regarding the program should be directed to NDFD.
