Automated defibrillator (AED) in the lobby

There is now an AED in the elevator lobby on the ground floor.

This is a portable device that checks the heart rhythm and can send an electric shock to the heart to try to restore a normal rhythm. AEDs are used to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). SCA is a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.

Take a few moments to see how easy it is to use this life-saving device by watching this short YouTube video about the AED.

There is also this longer video that talks about care of the equipment, etc.
