Defibrillators or AEDS hang on to thousands of places in the Netherlands, for example, in schools, in companies and shops. If such a stroomstootapparaat is used to the heart rate of a target corridor, then the electrodes must be replaced. That may be just 150 euros in costs.

The insurer of the victim should pay, but that it is often not. If the good expires, the owner of the defibrillator, often do not know to whom he should strike.

It runs badly, then find owners for the often painful next of kin to bother with the account. That is, after 1 January past, because the ambulance service than the cost voorschiet and narrates to the insurer.
