The "First Responder App" helps to save lives in the context of sudden cardiac death (SCD) and is one "puzzle-part" of a bundle of measures against SCD.
Where implemented, the App allows bystanding persons to provide lifesaving assistance to victims of SCD. Users who have proven they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and willing to assist in case of an emergency can be notified over the First Responder App if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR.
The application has also a location database for publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillators (AED). Additionally the System has a link to the central European Registry of Cardiac Arrest (EuReCa One) - all cases can be tracked centrally over Europe. In June 2016 the System had its 100.000 tracked case and numbers are growing.
