Safety Points and defibrillators

The Safety Points contain:

  • A number of plasters
  • First-aid kit
  • Fire extinguisher
  • Fire blanket
  • Defibrillator


A defibrillator is a portable, battery-powered machine. By administering an electric shock, the defibrillator can get a heart which has stopped pumping blood around the body to start pumping normally again. It is not possible to use a defibrillator incorrectly, and it is easy to use.

Aarhus University has purchased and installed 65 defibrillators. The defibrillators are placed in high-traffic areas. Find the nearest defibrillator at hjertestarter.dk/English.
