Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locations

Automated External Defibrillator (AED)Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located throughout the campus.

AEDs are emergency medical devices used when a person is experiencing cardiac arrest, delivering an electrical shock designed to return the heart to its normal rhythm. Southern State maintains a number of these devices in fixed locations on each campus, as indicated on the campus layouts below.

How an AED Works

Once turned on, prompts appear that guide AED users through the process. One of the initial prompts instructs the user to connect the AED to the victim by placing adhesive pads on the victim's chest.

The AED analyzes the victim's heart rate to determine if a shock is needed. If the AED unit does not detect an abnormal heart rhythm, it will not deliver the shock. If a shock is needed, the AED will prompt the user to press a button that will deliver the shock.
