Aarhus University has purchased and installed 65 defibrillators. Each year, about 3,500 people in Denmark suffer heart failure outside hospital. Today, just under 200 survive. With life-saving first aid and fast defibrillation, it is estimated that 300-400 Danes could survive a heart attack. At Aarhus University, the defibrillators are placed in busy areas, and you need know where they are. Therefore, it is important that all the defibrillators are correctly registered.


We ask all units that have a defibrillator to check the details and then register the defibrillator at This information is shared with emergency control centres nationwide, so that first-aiders can be directed to the nearest defibrillator if there is one close by. is run by TrygFonden. The site shows you how to use a defibrillator, and describes various cases where defibrillators have saved lives.

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.

Many of AU’s defibrillators are manufactured by Laerdal and purchased from Dansk Brandteknik, which regularly services the machines. AU’s contact at Dansk Brandteknik is Kurt Bach Jensen (, tel. 2090 9322).
