Emergency: app alerts first responders

Dear Sir or Madam,

approximately 10,000 people die every year, for example from a cardiac arrest, because the emergency medical service does not arrive in time. Just a few seconds are essential. Qualified emergency medical responders can register at the German app "mobile rescue". They receive an alert if an emergency happens in the immediate vicinity. They are often able to reach the place before the emergency service arrives. Read more in the interview with Dr. Ralf Stroop, app-inventor and neurosurgeon.

P.S. In our newest video, we deal with the topic "Hospital hygiene – international networking and learning".

Have a sunny week

Just a few minutes can make the difference between life and death when a person loses consciousness or goes into sudden cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, emergency medical services cannot always be on location as fast as needed. To ensure immediate life-sustaining measures, the "mobile rescue" (Mobile Retter) app was developed in Germany, which alerts emergency medical responders in the immediate vicinity of an emergency.
