Emergency responders, regardless of if they are paramedics or first aiders face challenges with quickly identifying nearby defibrillators during an emergency. The challenges that they face can be managed through several strategies including maintaining defibrillator location information and status information. Defibrillator tracking is an important part of emergency response, and can help save casualties who are having heart problems.
A digital solution can help make defibrillator locating more efficient and more effective.
SimplyCast presents the idea of the Locating Defibrillator use case. This is a communication system that makes use of mapping software and status tracking. By leveraging these tools, we can ensure that up-to-date information is available. This information is vital to responders and emergency dispatchers.
This solution works by leveraging mapping, information tracking, and search capability to ensure that responders can locate the needed resource.
Setting up a Defibrillator Location Solution
SimplyCast anticipated the need for a digital solution that can minimize time spent searching for emergency resources. By reducing the time spent seeking a functional defibrillator, emergencies can be resolved, and lives can be saved.
This solution is made up of three main parts, explained below.
Resource Records- Step 1
Maintaining an effective map of defibrillators and other important resources can be challenging. Despite this the importance of building such a map is high. Once the map has been created, it will be easy to maintain and update.
This means that the emergency resource map can be worked on by multiple entities such as fire inspectors, police officers, and other first responders. Furthermore, it allows all of them to check resources on-site. Defibrillator management is a system that requires the active participation of responders, administrators, and dispatchers.
This ensures that the most up-to-date information is available to dispatchers and administrators. These records could also be shared with venue operators. This would allow them to update the status of their defibrillator systems or other resources as well.
Online Form- Step 2
A form should be linked to the resource tracking dashboard. This allows anyone with access to the form to update the status on emergency tools such as defibrillators, trauma kits, and more. By allowing anyone with access to the dashboard to update this information, the likelihood that the information remains accurate is maximized.
Search the Map- Step 3
By using the Defibrillator Locator solution, dispatchers and other emergency personnel are able to input the address of a particular emergency and locate nearby resources. They will be able to see what resources are reasonably located and direct callers to those resources. This will help speed up response time and ensure that situations are resolved in the best way possible.
