USF Police First Philips AED Deployment

USF Police First Philips AED Deployment

 We were pleased to receive the following email from Officer Mark Aristizabal of the University of South Florida's Police Department only months after the 17 Philips FRx defibrillators were deployed.

officer-mark-aristizabal.jpgHello Kelly,

I wanted to let you know that yesterday evening, one of our Philips AEDs (Fire House Subs Grant Funded) was put to the test. The officer was dispatched to a medical emergency on campus and discovered the patient not breathing and without a pulse. The AED provided one shock before advanced medical care arrived on scene. The patient was transported to the hospital and is currently listed in critical condition. The AED information download was simple and the report it provided was fantastic. I would like to think that if it wasn’t for the quick shock from our AED, this individual may not have made it to the hospital.


Thanks for all you do!

Officer Mark Aristizabal
