For budgetary purposes, plan for a one-time expense of approximately $1,800 which includes the AED, mounting cabinet, signage and installation costs. Departments that co-occupy a building may want to consider partnering to share the cost. Ongoing maintenance, battery replacement, and pad replacement is centrally funded by the University AT NO COST to individual departments.
Each AED is wall-mounted inside an alarmed cabinet. An alarm will sound when the door is opened. This alarm serves several purposes including: deterring theft / vandalism, alerting bystanders to summon Lehigh Police / EMS, and alerting CPR/AED trained staff members to provide assistance. Staff members should immediately summon help whenever the alarm sounds.
A small sight-glass is located in the upper-right corner of the AED. This allows for inspection of the AED. You should observe a green light flashing every 10 seconds. This indicates that the AED is ready for use. The AED may also beep if a potential fault is detected. Contact the Lehigh Police if you hear a beeping noise and/or do not see the flashing light. Keep the AED in its normal location after notifying Lehigh Police.
In addition to the AED itself, a small red pouch contains response supplies including: a CPR mask, gloves, a razor, and absorbent cloth. LUEMS is responsible for care and maintenance of the AED units. This includes replacing the pads and batteries as prescribed.
