localresponder.org is developing a social media platform and emergency server to prevent deaths of sudden cardiac arrests and other diseases with high-efficiency, fully automated, low cost technologies such as Twilio.
According to the Heart Rhythm Foundation, 325,000 people in the U.S. per year die from sudden cardiac arrest, mainly because the emergency infrastructure is not geared to deliver effective therapy in time. That is one death every two minutes or five deaths in the time it takes to read this application. In other words, we are addressing the biggest health issue in the western world.
As for now, more than 95% of people suffering from a sudden cardiac arrest die. However, if a defibrillator is applied within the first three minutes after the incident, the chances of survival can be increased to up to 75 %.
