The first six minutes after a person goes into sudden cardiac arrest will ultimately determine life or death. However, across the nation’s 50 largest cities, less than 10% of savable lives are actually saved. FirstSix aims to improve survival rates by crowdsourcing emergency medical services (EMS) to the millions of trained healthcare professionals who walk among us each day
EMS response rates in most major US cities are too slow (5 – 13 min) This results in far too many deaths that could have otherwise been saved Slow response rates are often caused by trivial problems such as traffic congestion, ambulance turf wars
Imaging the following situation taking place taking place ina large urban city: A young college age student and accomplished runner is out for a jog on a summer’s evening and collapses on a busy street corner Bystanders immediately rush to her side and call 9-1-1 9-1-1 Operator dispatches an ambulance from a nearby firehouse Given the rush-hour traffic, the ambulance is slowed as the patient’s life slowly ticks away 12 minutes pass before paramedics reach her and connected a defibrillator to her heart, but by then it was too late, she was dead
Leverage the millions of physicians, nurses, and other trained medical professionals across the US to become the first responders Geolocation via smart phone allows integrated 911 personnel to see and dispatch the nearest available first responder in addition to traditional EMS
Now imaging the situation above taking place in a world withFirstSix: A young college age student and accomplished runner is out for a jog on a summer’s evening and collapses on a busy street corner Bystanders immediately rush to her side and call 9-1-1 9-1-1 Operator dispatches an ambulance from a nearby firehouse Additionally, the operator is able to see on her system that there are 3 FirstSix pre-certified first responders within a 3 block radius of the fallen patient The operator dispatches the closest FirstSix first responder to the scene While the ambulance is stuck in traffic, the FirstSix first responder arrives at the scene and is able to deliver CPR to the patient and helps to triage the situation while awaiting professional paramedics The ambulance arrives to transport the patient to the nearby hospital for further treatment A life is saved
Over 10 million emergency medical calls are received each year in major US cities The average reported response time from Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) ranges anywhere from 5 min – 15 min The American Heart Association estimate that with each 1 min passed, chances for heart attack survival are decreased by 10% Just from sudden heart attacks, over 75,000 savable lives are lost each year due to slow response Millions more suffer prolonged symptoms that could have been prevented
