A map of De Anza College, Cupertino, California, showing locations of many of the Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) can be found at:
The campus has three models of AEDs.
You can find descriptions of them and how to use them at AED quick facts.
Below are photos of most of the locations of the AEDs.
(When you look at these first photos of the AEDs accessible 24 hours a day,
you are looking for a white box with a red AED container in it.)
on a pillar outside the east entrance to the library, facing the main quad (biggest fountain)
on a pillar outside the north side of the L7 building facing the L quad fountain
on a pillar outside the division office for Physical Sciences, Math and Engineering, facing the large grassy area
on a pillar outside the north entrance (facing staff parking lot A and Stevens Creek Blvd.) to the Registration and Student Services building (previously known as the the Student and Community Services building), (bookstore, counseling, Admissions and Records), see map of these offices, steps away from the Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC)
on the wall of (Science Center) SC2 facing the courtyard (outdoor garden classroom) you can just see the white AED logo sign with the red symbol and below it the white side of the wall container for the aed
on the left hand side of the photo below you can see the AED on a wall outside the northwest entrance to the Kirsch Center for Environmental Studies, opposite the softball and baseball fields and the southeast end of the stadium and track.
on a wall outside the Adapted P.E. gym, P.E. 13, at the north-east corner of the building, opposite the south-west corner of the Forum building
on a wall at the south-east end of the swimming pool (shallow end, where some Adapted PE classes and novice swim classes are taught)
The model originally put at the pool deck is a little bit different than most. To turn it on you pull where it says “PULL” and when that lid lifts off you will find the pads already attached to the machine. (Many other models have you plug in the connector for the pads.)
Again, the campus has three models of AEDs. You can find descriptions of them and how to use them at AED quick facts.
There are other AEDs located inside buildings that are not accessible to everyone 24 hours a day.
There is an AED inside the Campus Police Office (FHDA District Police, De Anza Substation) and inside the Health Services office, both on the lower floor of the Campus Center, east side, as well as one in each campus police car.
There is an AED inside the Flint Center for Performing Arts.
There is an AED with the athletic trainers on the south side of PE6, facing the stadium.
As you walk into the front entrance of the Lifetime Fitness and Wellness Center , on the level above the pools, the AED is on a wall directly in front of you.
There is an AED inside the PE Division office. In the photo below, the office door is the center one on the upper level. To find the AED, go in the office door, turn right, then left. The AED is in a bracket (not in a case) on the wall opposite the refrigerator.
From THE PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE:
AED Trips a Canine Alarm
Last fall, the automated external defibrillator (AED) used by the Atlanta Braves created quite a stir when the team traveled to play the New York Mets.
John D. Cantwell, MD, an Atlanta cardiologist and a team physician for the Braves, recounts how the team and all its equipment had to pass a security clearance because of controversy surrounding Braves pitcher John Rocker. (Rocker’s inflammatory comments had been widely quoted.) “Everything cleared, then our equipment started beeping, and the bomb-sniffing dogs went ballistic,” Cantwell says. “It was the AED signaling that its battery was low.”
The moral: When traveling, make sure AEDs are fully powered, especially around bomb-sniffing dogs.
AED quick facts includes basic instructions for using more than one model of AED
(all models we have at De Anza College).
