It is stated that 'In 42% of the OHCAs a volunteer alert would have been appropriate, but the alert system was not activated.' The line should have read: 'In 49% of the OHCAs a volunteer alert would have been appropriate, but the alert system was not activated.' - In the Results it is stated that ‘Basically, there were no differences in the distribution of causes between the activated and non-activated group’. This sentence should have read: ‘Within the subgroups with cardiac cause versus non-cardiac cause, there were no differences in the distribution of causes between the activated and non-activated group.’ The online version of the original article can be found under https://doi.org/10.1007/s12471-017-1057-1.
