About Medizon

'After 6 minutes, the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest are zero'

- Marcus Flipsen, Director at Medizon -


‘Each year 17,000 people in the Netherlands suffer a cardiac arrest. In the event of acute heart failure, it is critical to act quickly by attempting resuscitation or defibrillation. The chances of survival decrease by 10% after every minute. After six minutes, the chances of survival are zero. An ambulance takes an average of 10 to 15 minutes to arrive at the scene, which is too long to save someone in a cardiac arrest. That’s why we depend on community responders.’

Medizon imports and implements AEDs in the Netherlands, and continuously works on the optimization of the deployability of this life-saving equipment.

Integrated services from KPN

Medizon is working to make AED cabinets smart. By linking sensors installed in the cabinets to the LoRa network, Medizon can monitor the devices 24/7. Because there is always a functioning AED present, HartveiligWonen’s community responders can get to the scene faster and thus save more lives.
