How to Use an AED (Training Videos)
The Philips HeartStart FRxdefibrillator is the most common AED unit found on the McMaster University campus. It features step-by-step voice instructions, including CPR guidance and an audible metronome to help guide basic life support responders while treating a suspected sudden cardiac arrest. These AED steps should be used when caring for a non-breathing child aged 8 or older who weighs more than 55 pounds, or an adult. After checking the scene and ensuring that person needs help contact Campus Security by dialing 88 on an internal phone/905-522-4135 or the emergency contact number in your area.
Although training is not needed to use an AED, it is part of Standard First Aid training. Standard First Aid training is available through Athletics and Recreation or contact University Health and Safety at firstname.lastname@example.org for tailored sessions.
