1150.004 Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Policy and Procedure


Each year, a large number of adults die from cardiovascular disease in the United States. At least a quarter of those die of sudden cardiac arrest before they reach a hospital. Many of these lives can be saved if a person quickly phones 911 and begins Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR), and if trained provide defibrillation within minutes. FIU is committed to increasing the survival rate of those individuals who may be experiencing sudden cardiac arrest by providing awareness, encouraging training, and maintaining quality program management in Automated External Defibrillation.
