Defibrillators on campus
The University has a number of defibrillators on our campuses should CPR be required.
The portable Zoll defibrillator device is easy to use. It automatically diagnoses and treats life threatening cardiac arrhythmias through the application of electrical therapy, allowing the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm. The fully automated defibrillator delivers a shock without the user having to push a button to actually administer it. The shock is commanded by the device software.
Anyone can use these devices by following the instructions. For a demonstration please watch this video on how to use a defibrillator.
The device carries out a self-test on a daily basis, and should there be any issues with the unit, it will bleep to advise you it needs checking. The defibrillator will either tell you that the pads need changing, due to being close to expiry, or that the batteries need changing. If you identify any faults with the product please alert the College ACMi or the Health and Safety Department.
