You know how you are probably never more than 3 feet from a spider? You are probably never more than 200m from a doctor, nurse or a paramedic.... so you can ask for their help in emergencies!
That's where the Good SAM App comes in - a tool utilising the latest in App development that intends to alert those with medical training to nearby emergencies so that potentially life-saving interventions can be given before the arrival of emergency services.
When someone has a medical emergency or a traumatic event that affects heart function or ability to breathe, seconds count. It's critical that they receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR - chest compressions and rescue breaths) and defibrillation in the first three to four minutes.
The GoodSAM system also has a built in crowd-sourced defibrillator registry. With this built-in function, GoodSAM users can help even before a life is in danger, by registering public access defibrillators throughout the community
Getting a defibrillator quickly to someone who is suffering a cardiac arrest can often mean the difference between life and death!
