The Division of Occupational Health and Safety Community Health Branch (DOHS/CHB) is responsible for providing and maintaining 364 strategically placed Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) throughout NIH facilities (on-and-off campus), as well as those NIH satellite facilities where NIH staff and NIH contractor staff occupy office space(s). AEDs are provided in an area near you for emergency use by trained personnel to aid in the emergency response time of those who maybe experiencing sudden heart-irregularities and cardiac arrest or symptoms.
AED training is part of the Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training provided by DOHS/CHB through our own American Heart Association Training Center. Classes offered for the NIH workforce are Lay Responder CPR/AED (general staff) and Basic Life Support (clinicians and PHS officers). Register for AED training and find AED locations.
