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.

This device is easy to use and designed to walk you through the whole process. Just listen to the voice instructions.

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.

Note – the lobby box will make a sound when it is open. Just shut the door after taking out the red defibrillator package and that sound will stop.
