Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Locations

Wall-mounted AED and open AED unit

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

AEDs are located in selected UC San Diego facilities, and in all UC San Diego 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.

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.

AEDs used at UC San Diego 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 if you would like AED training for your department.
