The CDA, D66 (Democrats), Christenunie, and 50Plus political parties want more automated external defibrillators (AED’s) in Eindhoven. According to the parties, about 300 resuscitations occur per year in the region.
The groups indicated that, when assistance is given within six minutes, the patient’s survival rate increases by 50 to 70%. According to them, professional help is often only available after six minutes.
Eindhoven Heart Safe
The Stichting Eindhoven Hartveilig (Eindhoven Heart Safe Foundation) has asked for more defibrillators in municipal buildings. These must be accessible to civil servants 24/7, not just during office hours.
