Volunteer Responders: Increasing Survival Rates of Cardiac Arrest Incidents: 8 November, 14:30 (CET).

It has been proven that dispatch of volunteer responders to OHCA is associated with increased survival rates, and the CPR guidelines of the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) recommend establishing such systems.

This webinar will explain the chain of survival, CPR and defibrillation and explore the ERC guidelines on establishing volunteer responder systems. Our speakers will share their experience of setting up a volunteer responder programme in Denmark, and share research findings about the association between the number of volunteer responders and CPR and defibrillation at OHCA incidents, before EMS arrival.

Join this webinar if you are interested in finding out the benefits of volunteer responder programmes and the impact they can have on the chain of survival.
