The Center for Resuscitation Medicine is engaged in an ongoing effort statewide to increase survival from sudden cardiac arrest. Through innovation, research, clinical trials and projects, and partnerships, the CRM strives to improve the systems-based approach to cardiac arrest from bystander to pre-hospital to hospital response. The CRM works in four key areas: bystander, pre-hospital and hospital response to cardiac arrest victims; resuscitation research; survivor support; and cardiac arrest data collection.

Through partnerships and committees, the CRM strives to improve the systems based approach to cardiac arrest from bystander to pre-hospital to hospital response. The CRM is funded through multiple grants and clinical projects.
The University of Minnesota received an $18.8M grant from the Helmsley Charitable Trust to fund the Minnesota AED Project. The Minnesota AED Project was designed to provide AEDs across the state of Minnesota to law enforcement agencies and first responders, aiming to increase cardiac arrest. To learn more about the launch of the Minnesota AED Project, please follow the link below for the press release.
The CRM has many AEDs that are still in good usable to place in community locations. These AEDs have been checked and updated. They are ready to find new uses and save lives. If you have any questions, please check our fact sheet. If you are ready to apply for an AED for a community location, start filling out the application. From time of application to delivery is approximately 3-4 weeks dependent on parts availability.
