Abstract:Ambulances aren’t always able to arrive on time, so civilian aid workers can start to resuscitate to increase the chance of survival of the victim. When using an AED, the chance of survival can increase up to 50%. More civilian aid workers are needed to save more lives. The aim of this research is to obtain insight in the factors influencing (not) signing up for an AED alert. The data of 8522 respondents, collected using Qualtrics, were used in the analyzes. The following results were found in this study. A high self-efficacy score of resuscitation predicts less fear of resuscitation. Altruism only shows a significant connection with the willingness to sign up when the people who can’t resuscitate were included in the analysis. The willingness to resuscitate acts as a mediator between the effect of fear on the willingness to sign up. The awareness of AED’s in the surroundings has predictive value on the intention to sign up for an AED alert. A high self-efficacy of signing up and the subjective norm appear to be important predictors of the intention to sign up. Finally, the moral norm has a positive predictive value on signing up for an AED alert.
