Crowdsourcing help in a medical emergency – GoodSAM

Check out The Good Sam App! What an amazing idea. Crowdsource help from nearby CPR trained volunteers who are alerted to where the incident is and told where the nearest AED is. In the meantime, remote help can watch and assess whats going on and give help and advice.

From their website:

Whose life might you save today? Calling all responders.

The difference early CPR and defibrillation makes can be crucial – that’s where you come in. If you are trained in first aid, download the GoodSAM Responder App today. You’ll then be alerted when you are in the immediate vicinity of a cardiac arrest, so that you can start CPR or basic first aid in the critical minutes before the emergency services arrive. The GoodSAM platform is highly governed and secure, with checks to ensure that all Responders are medically qualified. Once verified, you’ll join our network of community lifesavers.

Operating Internationally, GoodSAM (Good Smartphone Activated Medics) is the world’s most advanced emergency alerting and dispatching platform. The app allows alerters to dial the emergency services, and at the same time notify nearby medically qualified responders of a medical emergency. By alerting responders of an emergency, GoodSAM connects those in need with those who have the skills to provide critical help before the emergency services arrive.

Instant-on-scene™ with Text-to-Video™

With GoodSAM, Emergency Service call handlers can open the camera of any caller’s mobile phone simply by sending a text with a link – no App download is required! A picture paints a thousand words and seeing the scene or patient enables decision making that can sometimes be difficult from a third-party description. Better triage decisions mean more efficient use of resources and faster help to those who need it most.

The extensive GoodSAM network of responders, together with our GPS positioning and video systems enables us to provide a highly governed AED Drone Delivery System.

The UK’s and the World’s Largest Defibrillator Registry

GoodSAM volunteers have mapped thousands of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs). Additionally, our collaborative work with multiple ambulance organisations, has resulted in over 30,000 AEDs live on the platform. We sync our data every 72 hours with Ambulance Services so that it is always up-to-date.
