HEARTBEAT OF ‘LEGIOEN’ SAVES LIVES
Timely CPR with help of an AED drastically increases the chance at survival of people suffering from a cardiac arrest. If you receive CPR within six minutes after the cardiac arrest, you have the biggest change of survival. To make this possible, you need to have as many civil volunteers as possible.
The Dutch Heart Foundation asked Bijl PR to find the amount of volunteers needed that are capable of performing CPR, so that 1% of Dutch people are registered as civil volunteers. Because if you want to create a so-called ‘6 minute zone’ with the right amount of available AEDs and a national on-call system, you need enough volunteers.
