|Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) and the Automated External Defibrillator (AED)|
ICL member Pat Hoffman has drawn my attention to an excellent video on the internet on what to do if you encounter someone who has collapsed. The URL (web site address) is:
The video advises that the first thing to do is to call 911. That's correct off campus, but on campus, you should call Campus Safety at 503-370-6911 (note the 911 after the "370-6..."). They will provide immediate assistance. They carry emergency equipment, including an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). There are also AEDs in Ford Hall and in Goudy Commons (see below).
After 911 (or Campus Safety) has been called, the video describes the correct, currently accepted resuscitation procedure.
Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locations:
I suggest ICL members view the above video at the beginning of every semester, as well as print this list of AED locations and carry a copy in purse or wallet. Given the average age of our members, this information could be life-saving.
