Automated External Defibrillators

The use of Automated External Defibrillators (AED's) is recognised as highly beneficial in helping those who have suffered cardiac arrest, and it is estimated that 90-95% of cardiac arrests are fatal unless someone acts quickly. Think CPR, then raise the alarm and then think "where is the nearest defibrillator?" Research has shown that every minute without defibrillation reduces the chance of someone surviving an arrest by 10%.

Whilst our first aiders are all trained in the use of AED's, there is no need for specific training: anyone can use a AED and there is no risk of hurting someone should a AED need to be used by someone who has not been trained.

Please watch Ben's Story to see how effective an AED can be, even in the hands of a relative novice.

There are a number of AED's at the University of Warwick and the details of their location is available below.

If you require access to an AED located inside a secure box where a keycode is required please contact the Community Safety Team for the code.

The Health and Safety Department manage the University's AED's, with the help of; the Community Safety Team, Building Managers, responsible nominated people in each area as well as first aiders.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact health and safety training mailboxLink opens in a new window
