Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
The Faculty of Engineering provides automated defibrillator machines at the following locations:
|401||4||Main entrance reception area, on the wall outside the First Aid room.|
|401||12||Common Room, on the wall near the main entrance.|
|402||2||Engineering workshops, on the wall in the tea room.|
|439||6||Auckland Bioengineering Institute, on the wall in reception area.|

|740||1||CACM main reception area.|
|902||1||Reception at Newmarket Campus|
Should you need to use an AED, open up the lid and a recorded message will tell you exactly what to do.
There is no chance of accidently harming anyone by prematurely attaching them to an AED as it will not release a charge unless it detects a pre-determined condition in the patient.
If in doubt …… attach it, and follow the instructions!
