About Us

We are a social organization whose goal is to reduce the death rate of cardiac arrest victims worldwide. North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand are suffering from cardiac arrest crisis with a survival rate of 8% or less. In the US, it is the leading cause of death, more than HIV, house fire, colon cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, freeway deaths, firearm deaths combined. One person dies in the US from cardiac arrest every two minutes, and yet all it takes is for someone to perform CPR on the victim, followed by AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) to shock the heart back to its rhythm. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) hits anyone at any age, any physical condition. Close to 30% of US cardiac arrest deaths are under the age of 25.

How do we reduce the SCA death rate? Since most of the SCA happen outside of hospitals, it has been well studied that a bystander's participation is key to saving lives. Yet, around 87% of common people are not able nor willing to perform CPR on a stranger. Our free mobile app will connect any bystander to a nearest CPR person within a minute because after 4 minutes, the victim is brain dead. The nearest CPR certified person can either come over to help, or instruct the bystander on what to do.

We need your help to get volunteers who can spread the awareness and education of cardiac arrest and our simple solution. Together, we can save many lives, and the next one this app can save might be the one you love.
