Held on: 19 July, 15:00-16:30

It has already been extensively demonstrated that performing an early defibrillation helps raise the survival rate of victims of out-of-hospital cardiac arrests. The ‘Galileo for AEDs’ project intended to improve the access of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for people and PSAPs by looking at the best practices in AED mapping, identifying the legal gaps and developping a prototype to automatically determine the closest AED to a person contacting the emergency services.

‘Galileo for AEDs’ is an ongoing project. This webinar is presenting preliminary findings that have not yet been approved by the Commission. The purpose of this event is to present the ongoing research to the Commission and the specialised public with the following programme:
