AED / Defibrillators
Iowa State University is committed to the health and safety of its students, faculty, staff, and visitors. The Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program for this campus provides a policy and procedures that will:
implement enhanced life safety-response measures;
meet regulatory compliance;
provide continuity and consistency across campus in AED installation, maintenance, and use; and
establish AED-user training requirements.
The goal of an AED program is to increase the rate of survival of people who experience sudden cardiac arrests. AED programs are designed to provide equipment and training as an important means for providing enhanced life safety response measures. AEDs make it possible for lay responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of emergency medical services (EMS).
If you are interested in purchasing an AED for your building, department, or unit, please contact the AED Program Coordinator at (515) 294-5359.
Starting in 2021, bleeding control kits also are deployed in every AED cabinet on campus as part of ISU's Stop the Bleed program.
