The Public Access Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) Program is an integral part of Loyola University Maryland’s commitment to the safety and health of staff, faculty, students and visitors. The purpose of this program is to provide public access to University maintained AED’s for use in the event of a sudden cardiac emergency. The AED Program establishes protocols for training, use and maintenance of AED’s located on University property.

An abnormal heart rhythm is the common cause of most sudden cardiac arrests. When the heart rhythm becomes chaotic, often without warning, the heart will stop abruptly. The American Heart Association (AHA) states that survival from sudden cardiac arrest depends directly on the speed in administering a defibrillation shock in an attempt to restore normal heart function.
