The Mobilize Rescue App Feature: Prioritization of Medical Emergencies in a Multiple Casualty Scenario
Managing an unexpected medical emergency is hard, but imagine dealing with an incident where two victims have problems? How can you be sure you will know which victim to help first?
The Comprehensive and Mobile units take into account the possibility of multiple victims. With the Mobilize Rescue App you don’t have to make split-second, life-or-death decisions by yourself.
The Scenario: What Would You Do?
A custodian is cleaning a stairwell when your co-worker slips on the wet steps, tumbles to the bottom, and knocks the custodian unconscious. Your co-worker is bleeding badly from an openly broken arm, and you aren’t sure if the custodian is breathing. Who do you help first?
In the simplest terms, you should start with the medical emergency that will kill a victim the fastest before moving on to managing less life-threatening medical emergencies:
Severe bleeding can become fatal in as little as three minutes. The Mobilize Rescue App will always direct you to stop severe bleeding before anything else - in this case you should manage your co-worker's arm, first.
Complications from being unconscious can cause death in close to six minutes. Right after severe bleeding, the Mobilize Rescue App will direct you to manage airway and breathing problems - in this case, the custodian.
Although an unconscious victim is scary to look at, severe bleeding is actually the more serious emergency and should be treated first. The software will coach you through this decision by asking some simple yes or no questions.
The Bystander Benefit:
You don’t have to make split-second, life-or-death decisions all by yourself.
Medical emergencies are difficult enough without the pressure of having to choose who gets to live and who must die. In a complicated and chaotic incident, the Mobilize Rescue App will direct you to treat the victims with the most severe emergencies first, so that you can be confident that you did everything you could to save as many lives as possible.
And even if you have had first aid training in the past, studies have show that 67% of students fail a hands-on first aid test 90-days after training, and that more than 9 out of 10 fail 1-year after training. Having an app to remind you what to do (and when you need to do it) can provide a high-quality ‘refresher’ course as an emergency unfolds.
The Organizational Benefit:
Life-or-death decisions shouldn’t have to rest on the shoulders of your employees.
The Mobilize Rescue System will mitigate the challenges of traditional training that prevent organizations from sending every single employee to a First Aid and CPR training course. Courses take employees away from work for an entire day, cost more than $100 and Since the Mobilize Rescue System coaches an untrained user through an emergency, organizations can empower more than just a small, select group of ‘trained’ people to save lives by distributing the Mobilize Rescue App to every single employee.
It's That Simple!
