Linn Andelius, MD

Physician and Phd Student

Linn was born in Gothenburg, Sweden and moved to Aarhus, Denmark in 2009 where she started medical school. She has lived in Copenhagen since 2015. Linn has started training in cardiology but is now doing fulltime research to complete her PhD.

Currently she is working with the citizen responder program to increase the availability of CPR and the use of AEDs for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Linn will talk about the importance of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) in the community to increase survival for persons with cardiac arrest outside of hospital. She will share experiences with a novel citizen responder program where citizens can register to an app and be dispatched and guided to start early CPR and defibrillation if they are nearby a cardiac arrest.
