Automatic External Defibrillators (AED) devices have been installed throughout the UCL Bloomsbury campus for use in emergency situations.
Portable Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) are lightweight devices. They are easy to operate, designed to be used by any person with or without training. They are used when a casualty has a serious cardiac rhythm disturbance causing unconsciousness, such as a heart attack.
Following advice from the London Ambulance Services, UCL has deployed the POWERHEART® G5 model as shown in the picture below.
Using an AED
• Call 222 (for ambulance and security support)
• Remove AED from case
• Follow the spoken instructions given by AED (in English)

Each AED will be given a unique UCL asset number, with its location.
There is a planned maintenance schedule in place for the replacement of the pads every two years and batteries every four years.
