CardiActEvolving the response effort for victims of Cardiac Arrest

CardiAct is a mobile application designed to reduce response time for victims of cardiac arrest by crowdsourcing assistance from CPR certified individuals near a victim during an emergency. Pairing the application with a supported physical heart monitor will allow it to keep track of a user’s heart rate and detect any abnormalities. The app can even request help automatically if the victim is unresponsive. The application will be used by both the potential victims, and the potential responders. When a user is in need of emergency assistance, they can use the app to request help and responders within a 2 mile radius receives an alert with the victims name, address and estimated time it would take to reach them.

  • Emergency Mode

    CardiAct displays emergency mode when a victim requests help, or a dangerous heart rate is detected with a heart monitor. The CPR Responder(s) will be sent an alert and provide the victims location along with other vital information needed to help save the victim’s life.

  • Map Screen

    Once the CPR Responder clicks "I Can Help", the app launches - showing the victims locations and the best direction to reach them. It also shows the nearest AED, which is a device needed to shock the heart back to normal electrical function.

  • Unified Response

    Every responder and emergency contacts can see the locations of other responders. When a responder reaches the victim, they can confirm they are with them, allowing other responders to play a supportive role, such as getting the AED.

  • Unified Response

    Once a responder reaches the victim, they can confirm if they have an AED or not, allowing the other responders to retrieve one if need be.

  • Chat Screen

    Responders and emergency contacts have the ability to communicate in a chat room setting, providing transparency between all parties.

  • Status Screen

    Here, users can view the victims current heart rate and the duration of distress. This is important information because a victim can start to experience brain damage in 4-6 minutes.

  • Victim Info

    When clicking on the "Victim Button" on the Status Screen, the user can view more about the victim. This is important information we found during User Testing. Any medical information is important information to responders.

  • Static Mode

    Static mode is for at-risk individuals who could possibly experience a Cardiac Arrest. The app is married to a heart rate monitor the individual wears and the app alerts CPR responders and emergency contacts. Here the user can see their current heart rate.

  • Call for Help

    When an emergency happens, and the user is conscious, they can call for help if there is an emergency, call a family member or friend to help, or close if it is a false alarm.

  • Push Alert

    I the case of a real emergency, the user will be able to self help if conscious, or an alert will automatically send out if they are unconscious. When an alert is confirmed by a responder, the victim is notified that help is on the way.

  • Diable Monitor

    If a user wants to take off their heart rate monitor or simply not wear it, they can disable their monitor so it is not monitoring their current heart rate.

  • Contacts

    Here, a user can add or edit their existing contacts. Contacts are friends or family who are notified in addition to CPR responders when an at-risk individual experiences a cardiac arrest.

  • Profile

    A user can update valuable information of responding parties by inputting their personal health information or any other valuable information.
