Submitted by Denise Hudgin

AED and STOP the Bleed

The importance of life-saving equipment has been in the news since an automated external defibrillator (AED) was used to resuscitate Buffalo Bills safety, Damar Hamlin. The survival rate of a patient defibrillated within the first 3 minutes of a cardiac arrest approaches 95%. How quickly could you get to an AED at Mercy College? AEDs and STOP THE BLEED kits are located throughout the building. Both items are available at:

6th floor Madison: outside the PA student center

5th floor Madison: by the single elevator/stairwell K/student study rooms

4th floor Madison: by the single elevator/faculty offices/restrooms

3rd floor Madison: by the double elevators around the corner from the open computer lab

2nd floor Madison: by the single elevator between offices 2615 & 2619

1st floor Madison: in the lobby outside the tutor and advisors offices

6th floor Jefferson: near the financial aid offices/down the hall from the learning commons

3rd floor Jefferson: outside the student lounge between the men and women restrooms

2nd floor Jefferson: outside the student lounge around the corner from the main Jefferson elevators

1st floor Jefferson: AED is located outside the Gandy clinic (there is not currently a stop the bleed unit)
