Campus AEDs & Narcan

Generally the automatic external defibrillators (AED devices) are located on the first floor near the center of the building. Each of these locations also contains Narcan. Having narcan and AEDs together in public places like offices makes sense logistically, since they are both lifesaving emergency medications that need to be administered quickly. People who overdose on opioids often suffer cardiac arrest, so having the AED right there is critical. Providing both medications in one location allows first responders to rapidly treat either type of emergency situation. Stocking narcan alongside AEDs demonstrates Nazareth's commitment to public safety and preparedness. It enables rapid response to both cardiac arrests and overdoses, which can happen anywhere.

About AEDs

Automated external defibrillators are used to help people experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. These sophisticated, yet easy-to-use medical device can analyze the heart's rhythm and, if necessary, deliver an electrical shock, or defibrillation, to help the heart re-establish an effective rhythm.
