Automated External Defibrillators

Information

UW-Whitewater currently has  51 Automated External Defibrillator (AED)  units located throughout campus. The AED is an emergency response device that is used to provide care for victims of sudden cardiac arrest. The AED analyzes the hearts electrical system, and if necessary, will prompt the responder to deliver a shock to the victim. Each minute of delay in use of an AED on a victim of sudden cardiac arrest decreases the victim's chances of survival by approximately 10%.

American Heart Association AED training sessions are offered through the University Police, at no cost to any campus faculty or staff member, including student employees.

Training

Adult CPR/AED training teaches basic Adult CPR and the use of the Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Initial and recertification sessions are 3 hours long. The American Heart Association recommends training every 2 years. If maintaining current CPR certification is an official job requirement, contained within an employee's official position description, employees must successfully complete training every two years.

This training is voluntary and is not a requirement of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. A trained volunteer is not required to respond to an emergency. The Good Samaritan provision of Wisconsin Statute 895.48(1) provides primary liability protection for volunteers.

For any questions about this training, please contact the University Police via email at police@uww.edu or at x4660 or contact CPR at cpr@uww.edu.
