Public access Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are located in many University of Wyoming buildings. This page is offered by the UW Environmental Health and Safety Department to provide information about AEDs including: what an AED is, the benefit of using it, and how to become certified to use it properly.
Also included are links to: a map of AEDs that are accessible to the UW campus public; resources for individuals interested in becoming certified in Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) in addition to AED use; and also on-campus classes to become a CPR/AED instructor.
“Public access'' refers to the accessibility of the AED device itself. “Public access” does NOT mean that any member of the public who witnesses a person in cardiac arrest or ventricular fibrillation should use an AED to treat them. While AEDs are reasonably uncomplicated to use, they should be used only by persons who have received proper AED training and education and who have been certified to use an AED by a competent authority.
