During the 2019 Lowlands music festival, the Lowlands Saves Lives trial was performed by the department of Cardiology. This was a randomized trial, comparing two innovative CPR-training methods: a short, instructor led training vs. virtual reality CPR training using the Lifesaver smartphone app.
The study was a huge success as over 350 participants were randomized and learned to perform CPR. It was featured on RTL news and in several news papers. Results are expected in the coming months. For more information: www.cprsaveslives.nl
