DEFIBRILLATOR AT THE DOWNTOWN CAMPUS!!!
We are pleased to inform you that we have installed an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) at the IIT Downtown Campus to make early defibrillation immediately available in cardiac emergencies.

WHAT IS SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST (SCA)?
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) can happen anywhere, to anyone, at anytime, without warning, without symptoms, and regardless of age or health. SCA is most often caused by an electrical malfunction that makes the heart quiver ineffectively. Defibrillation, an electric shock across the heart, is the only effective treatment for this malfunction. It stops the ineffective quivering and allows a coordinated heart rhythm to resume. Surviving SCA is largely dependent on how quickly the patient is defibrillated.

TYPICAL INDICATIONS THAT SOMEONE IS EXPERIENCING SCA:
An abnormal or racing heart beat
Feeling faint or dizzy due to loss of blood flow.
Abnormal breathing
Loss of blood pressure and pulse
Loss of consciousness
Unresponsive

WHEN SCA STRIKES, EVERY MINUTE COUNTS.
Every minute counts when sudden cardiac arrest strikes. The new HeartStart AED unit has been installed at the front lobby desk where it will be readily accessible to emergency responders. Everyone at the IIT Downtown Campus can make a lifesaving difference in a medical emergency by immediately calling 911 and the DTC Security Officer on duty (ext 6-5030 using a campus phone or 312-906-5030 using a cell phone). Be sure to specifically identify the location of the victim so a trained responder can be dispatched to the scene.

If you believe a person is experiencing SCA, please attempt to locate a trained responder by calling security as noted above. However, it is important to note that the HeartStart AED that we purchased is specifically designed to be used by virtually anyone. It actually walks the user/responder through the process with verbal instructions and other commands during the entire process. The unit has a safety feature that analyzes the victim before allowing an electric shock to be administered. In an emergency situation and in the absence of a trained user, an AED user who acts in good faith and without compensation is protected from civil liability under Illinois’ Automated External Defibrillator Act, except for willful and wanton misconduct.
