2 PhD students, three staff members, and seven faculty members from the MAMS Department (spread over both buildings) received the CPR/AED training on 5/1/2024.

CPR stands for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, a lifesaving technique used in emergencies when someone’s heartbeat or breathing has stopped. It involves chest compressions and, in some cases, rescue breathing to maintain blood circulation and oxygenation in the body.

AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator. It’s a portable device that can deliver an electric shock to the heart to restore its normal rhythm in cases of sudden cardiac arrest. AEDs are often used alongside CPR to increase the chances of survival for someone experiencing a cardiac emergency.

This training certified them on how to conduct CPR and use AED during emergencies.
