AED devices

Using an AED, or Automated External Defibrillator, is simple. It does not even require any training. Just switch on the device and follow the instructions it provides.

After the electrodes have been put in place, the device is capable of analysing the patient's heart rhythm. If the device decides a shock is necessary, it will instruct you to step back and administer the shock automatically.

Hasselt University's five fully automatic AED devices are located in the following places:

  • Old Prison: First Aid room 
  • Building D: First Aid room 
  • BIOMED A: hallway ground floor 
  • BIOMED C: hallway ground floor
  • IMO: entrance hall

We advise everyone to make sure they know where they are, because every second counts during an emergency.

Why not take a look for your colleagues and get them to take a look for you?

Diepenbeek Campus

The defibrillator is located in the First Aid room in block D, room D15. The device is located in a sealed box. Opening this box will activate an alarm: this is to prevent theft, and alert others to a potential emergency.

Campus Hasselt

The defibrillator is located in the First Aid room D0.7 of the Old Prison.
