How smartphones are saving lives in Victoria

 

“More Victorians than ever before are surviving a cardiac arrest, thanks to faster response times and everyday Victorians who rush to the aid of their fellow citizens.”

 

From a media release earlier in the month, the Victorian State Government announced it was expanding a smartphone app that is helping to save lives.

This incredible application is used to dispatch the nearest medical professional to a cardiac arrest.

That means faster response times to critical medical events and an increase in the chances of survival.

The application is deployed on smartphones that are carried by paramedics, medical professional and emergency service personnel. When a 000 call comes in, the nearest Ambulance is sent and a ping put into the app, alerting the nearest medical professional who can attend the scene and implement immediate first aid.

You can read more about the app at the link below.

What a great initiative and hopefully something to be expended to the wider public.
