The goal of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) program is to increase the rate of survival of people who have sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs make it possible for trained responders to administer defibrillation prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS). At least one AED is located in all places of public assembly that have 50,000 feet or more and where at least 50 persons congregate on a normal business day. There are over 120 Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) on the Eugene Campus. AEDs are placed in all UO Police Department vehicles which can quickly be deployed anywere on campus. Specific locations are available at https://map.uoregon.edu/s/aeds.
