Enabling accessible and effective CPR training
When someone is undergoing cardiac arrest, the quick and proper actions of a bystander have the power to save a life. The growing amount of CPR/AEDs in public spaces has shown a direct increase in the survival rate of cardiac arrest patients. The confidence to start with cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the quality of the performed chest compression is important to further increase this rating. Harry Palsma, a medical doctor with more than 25 years of expertise in bystander CPR/AED-education and research, founded SamAid in order to contribute to this cause. SamAid aims to offer a strong and reliable training method to guide potential bystanders through the steps of cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Easy to use, e-learning based and directly applicable from home.
