Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

The leading cause of death in the United States is heart disease, which often leads to sudden cardiac arrest. The use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can greatly increase a person’s chance of surviving. AEDs are simple to use and can be found throughout the university. Find locations of AEDs on the HLS campus and across Harvard University.
