Less serious incidents
Material damage or personal injury that only affects the operations within the department, and which are not considered a serious incident, will be handled by the FyFa crisis management team Håkan Westerblad (Head of Department), Eva Gipperth (Head of Administration) and Sofia Schilken (HR Manager).
Minor injuries can often be handled within the social network, through peer group support and management efforts. If additional support is required the occupational health care provider, the Student Health Centre or the HR Office can assist in the crisis management.
Defibrillators at FyFA (AED)
There are two Automated External Defribillators (AED) at FyFa, both of which contain a manual with clear instructions for use.
One is located just outside the library in the Pharmacology building, on the same wall as the fire extinguisher (the red briefcase on top of the fire extinguisher).
The other is located outside the lunch room in the Physiology building (the red briefcase on the wall to the left of the door).
Current automated external defibrillator devices are designed for emergency medical technicians, home users, police and security officers and other people with minimal medical knowledge.
An AED contains a battery, a control computer, and electrodes. When the electrodes are stuck onto the patient, the control computer will assess the patient, checking the rhythm of their heart. It will then charge itself to an appropriate power level and tell users that the person needs to be shocked. If the patient does not need to be defibrillated, the automated external defibrillator will not allow a shock to be administered. A button must still be pushed manually to trigger the shock, as the operator beforehand must be certain that nobody is touching the patient. Automated External Defibrillators will have speakers which give instructions when they are opened (in Swedish).
No formal training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation is required to use the defibrillators. Once you have started the CPR, alert 112 and have someone meet the ambulance staff.
