At the TU Braunschweig there are defibrillators, so-called AED (Automated External Defibrillators), at numerous locations.

These are available for first aid for ventricular fibrillation (cardiac arrest) and can be used by trained laypersons and first aiders.

After the onset of ventricular fibrillation, survival and a good prognosis depend largely on the following early first aid measures:

- Cardiac pressure massage (30 x) alternating with respiration (2 x)

- Defibrillation = Anwendung eines definierten Elektroschocks mittels Defibrillator.
