During the past 20 years the survival after out-of-hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) has almost quadrupled from 4% in 2001 to 14% in 2020. There has been a huge focus on layman education in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and use of automated external defibrillators (AED), implementation of healthcare staff at 1-1-2 dispatch centers, early recognition of OHCA, establishment of a national AED register with publicly available AEDs, and dispatch of volunteer responders in case of nearby OHCA. This review describes implemented initiatives with the purpose of improving survival from OHCA in Denmark.
