Automated Electronic Defibrillators


Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) kills around 365,000 people in the United States annually. According to the American Heart Association, as many as 50 percent of SCA victims have no prior indication of heart disease; their first symptom is cardiac arrest.

The only definitive treatment for SCA is a defibrillation shock - an electrical pulse through the heart - which restores a normal heart rhythm. The chance of an SCA victim's survival decreases by 7 to 10 percent for every minute that passes, so in order to be effective, defibrillation treatment must be administered within the first few minutes of cardiac arrest. After as little as 10 minutes, very few resuscitation attempts are successful.

Because response time is critical in the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, each Police patrol vehicle within our police department is equipped to rapidly deploy an AED anywhere on campus. With that said, other locations equipped with AED's include:

  Student Activities Center behind stage left

  Intramural Fields Concession Stand

  Centennial Center front entrance

  Georgia College Police Department dispatch center

  Wellness Center

  Student Health Services

  Maxwell Student Union

  Campus Theater
