Tampa, FL, October 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- In March of 2015, the National 911 Program and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that in 2014, in 27 states alone there were over 104 million emergency calls made from cell phones to 911 operators. Nationwide and on an annual basis, this equates to approximately 192 million emergencies being reported to 911 operators from cell phones.
A well-known and long standing problem within the U.S. has been the inefficiency of emergency medical services which are responsible for administering emergency medical care to victim's of emergencies. In 2005, Julia Rusinek, a 21-year-old female Yale sociology student and accomplished runner collapsed after working out at a local gym in Washington. It was later determined she was healthy except for a sudden short circut in her heart. "Her heart needed a zap within 6 minutes from a common medical device known as a defibrillator," as reported by Robert Davis of USA Today. Davis reported that bystanders saw her fall and immediately called 911. 12 minutes passed until an ambulance team connected a defibrillator to her chest but unfortunately, "Like thousands of others every year in cities across the country, Rusinek lost any chance she had to survive because of an emergency medical system that consistently fails to save as many lives as it should."
Now there's a solution and it's called the "iSystem." Developed by Emergency iSystems LLC, the “iSystem” is a Patent Pending emergency application now available to ambulance service providers and 911 operators in all 50 states at no cost. In real-time the iSystem bridges the gap between ambulance teams, 911 operators and callers involved in emergencies. When asked about the iSystem, Alison Huff-Rinaberger (MD) at the SIU School of Medicine said, “There is no other product or service that functions like that of the Patent Pending iSystem” and “It’s valuable to each person during a medical emergency.” 8 year critical care and emergency nurse (RN), Maggie Yeager of the Florida Medical Center ER Department stated, “As a critical care and emergency nurse, I can tell you the iSystem is a ground breaking must have." 7 year Sgt., Ruben Fernandez of the U.S. Military stated, “I believe it to be the most useful piece of technology available to ambulance service providers today and is something that every emergency response team should have access to.” 10 Year Emergency Medical Technician, Jason Smith with Lehighton Ambulance Association said, “I think the iSystem should be used by EMS providers everywhere.”
For the average ambulance team in route to an emergency, the iSystem would provide the emergency caller’s GPS location and medical profile to the ambulance team so that while in route, the Paramedics and EMT’s could actually read through and utilize the caller’s medical profile to prepare for the caller’s emergency before actually arriving to the scene. As a result of leveraging the iSystem, ambulance teams would no longer arrive to the scene of emergencies uninformed if the ambulance team leverages the iSystem. Going forward and assuming use of the iSystem, public and private ambulance service providers across the U.S. could arrive well informed of the caller’s complete medical profile.
For the average consumer, the iSystem is an emergency application that functions as the consumer’s premeditated plan of action for handling emergencies compared to relying on 911 alone. It’s the first and only available emergency application for cell phones to simultaneously connect callers to 911 operators, share the caller’s GPS location with the nearest EMS teams, share the caller’s medical profile with the nearest EMS teams, and to distribute an emergency text and email message to the caller’s emergency contact persons in real-time.
When asked about how the company plans to provide ambulance service providers with access to the iSystem, company President and CEO Grant Webb stated, “We developed the iSystem with the intent to give both public and private companies access to utilize the iSystem at no cost. Our goal is to save lives and improve emergency medical care at the scene and in an effort to do so, we’re giving well known EMS providers American Medical Response (AMR), Sunstar Paramedics, Medfleet, Americare, and Transcare access to utilize the iSystem at no cost as they operate in the vast majority of the U.S. We feel this to be the best way to begin affecting positive change in emergency medical care at the scene.”
