Life-Saving Automated External Defibrillators Installed in All Residences

AEDs installed in McMaster University residences

Over the last few months, McMaster has made enhancements to on-campus safety with the installation of 28 new automated external defibrillators (AED) across campus.

These portable devices are to be used in instances of sudden cardiac arrest, a condition in which the heart suddenly stops beating.

Until recently, bystanders assisting a person in sudden cardiac arrest on campus would only be able to perform CPR until emergency responders arrive. With every minute of sudden cardiac arrest leading to a 10 per cent reduction in survival rates, seconds count and a shock can stop the clock.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
