HeartsafeLiving is an alert system whereby neighborly assistants can be employed voluntary when a fellow citizen has a sudden cardiac arrest in the nearby living or working environments. The system can alert the volunteer via a text message or notification via the App and ask to give neighborly assistance, if the personal circumstance allows this. This alert is fully automatic and will start from the dispatch center Ambulance via a call to 911. The alert may occur both day and night, and at Sundays and public holidays.
The average travel time of an ambulance to resuscitation is on average 10 minutes and allowed by law even up to 15 minutes in the Netherlands. For a patient with a sudden cardiac arrest, this is far too long. This voluntary alert system can bridge this precious time and can prevent the death of a citizen in many cases. Simply performing CPR can double the survival rate of a citizen with a cardiac arrest. The quick use of a defibrillator (AED) by an alerted volunteer, can save the life of citizen in cardiac arrest even in almost 40% of acute care.
