AEDs on campus may help save a life

Automated External Defibrillators (AED) are now scattered around Miami University's campus in case of emergency situations. The device is a medical tool that detects and analyzes cardiac arrhythmias of people having sudden cardiac arrest.

AEDs produce shocks through electrodes attached to patients’ chests that stops the heart and returns it to a more normal rhythm.

The devices in Oxford are located in Bachelor Hall, Brown Rd. IT building, Campus Ave. building, Cole Service Center, Goggin Ice Arena, Hall Auditorium, Hoyt Hall, Millett Hall, Murstein Alumni Center, Phillips Hall, rec sports center, Shriver Center, Withrow Court, Yager's sports medicine room and the horse stable.

There are six additional AEDs assigned to university police patrol cars and three additional units at the Police Service Center by Ditmer parking lot.

On the regional campuses, AEDs are located in Middletown here:
* Bennett Recreation Center, court level next to main entrance.
* Thesken Hall, first floor hallway across from room 101.
* Johnston Hall, 1st floor near elevator outside room 109.
* Gardner-Harvey, basement lobby across from outside entry.
* Levey Hall first floor lobby.
* Finkelman Auditorium main lobby.
      
On the Hamilton campus, they are in:
* The gymnasium, by the front door to the right of the gym doors.
* Mosler Hall, across from the south elevator
* Rentschler Hall first floor, by double doors that face the plaza.
* Schwarm Hall first floor, by doors that face the courtyard, inside the commons on the right.
* Wilks Conference Ctr., first floor, on the left, near storage room 101.
* Phelps Hall, first floor across from the men's restroom
* University Hall, on the right of conference room 100
* Inside North Hall
* The security office, behind the door

One AED is in the main lobby near the south hallway at the Voice of America Learning Center.      

Although it is advisable to be trained by a medical professional before using an AED, the machines all provide prompts for their use and can be the difference between life and death.  A video explaining how to use one is on the Miami police website. Written instructions can be read on a National Institutes of Health site.
