Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locations at UCSD

Wall-mounted AED and open AED unit

Locate automated external defibrillator (AED) units at UC San Diego.

AEDs are located in selected UCSD facilities, and in all UCSD Police vehicles. Most AED units in buildings are designated with the standard white, triangular AED sign (see image at right). Other AED sign options are available.

Maintenance:  EH&S manage and oversee the AED’s on campus. EH&S will maintain and check them as required. You can contact emergency@ucsd.edu if you need any clarification on the current process.

AEDs used at UCSD are approved by the American Heart Association. Anyone expected to use an AED in a cardiac emergency should be trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the appropriate use of AED devices.  Contact emergency@ucsd.edu if you would like AED training for your department.

Automated external defibrillator units (AEDs) use embedded computer chips to analyze heart rhythms instantly and accurately, making it possible for non-medical professionals to administer a controlled electric shock to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. The devices ensure that an electric shock is delivered only when necessary.
