Defibrillator

The University has a number of defibrillators on our campuses should CPR be required.

An automated external defibrillator (AED) is a portable and easy-to-operate medical device that analyses an unconscious victim’s heart rhythm and automatically delivers an electric shock if they are having a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

An AED will not deliver a shock unless its built in computer detects a shockable heart rhythm.
AEDs are provided for use by Charles Sturt University and Charles Sturt - affiliated first aid trained personnel to assist in the resuscitation of staff, students, contractors and visitors as necessary.

Anyone can use these devices by following the instructions- in the first instance by opening the lid of the AED and pushing it back till it locks and follow the voice and text prompts.
Please call 000 in the event of a SCA or any other emergency. All uses of the AEDs must be reported to Charles Sturt University Work Safety and Health Unit via an incident report.

The device carries out a self-test on a daily basis, and should there be any issues with the unit, it will bleep to advise you it needs checking.

The defibrillator will either tell you that the pads need changing, due to being close to expiry, or that the batteries need changing. If you identify any faults with the product please alert the Work Health and Safety Unit - safety@csu.edu.au

There is a twice-yearly maintenance and service contract on all defibrillators.

Transporting injured or sick staff, students and visitors

Serious or life-threatening illness or injury

If somebody has a serious illness or injury, you should contact your nearest first aid officer. If they think the casualty needs an ambulance, they should:

  • dial 000 (from a fixed line phone) or 112 (from a mobile phone)
    • ask for an ambulance
    • describe the nature of the illness or injury
    • state the number of casualties
    • describe the location of the casualty, and place to meet the ambulance
  • arrange for security to meet the ambulance.

Do not transport seriously injured or ill staff or visitors in your own personal vehicle.

Where the illness or injury is not serious or life-threatening

If the illness or injury is not serious, the injured or sick person may:

  • arrange for a family member or friend to collect them
  • transport themselves home or to the doctor in their own vehicle, if well enough

When an injured person cannot wear a seat belt, you must call an ambulance.

You can send questions about first aid, or first aid training, to safety@csu.edu.au
