US Medtech, LLC is partnering with Mobilize Rescue Systems to place life-saving medical knowledge and supplies into the hands of untrained bystanders. Bryan Hanson, the proprietor of US Medtech, is especially interested in advancing the use of the life-saving technology among educators concerned for the safety of their students.
"US Medtech, LLC is proud to partner with Mobilize Rescue in our effort to provide life saving tools that anyone can use in the first critical minutes of a medical emergency,” said Hanson. "In light of the tragic incidents in schools over the last few years, we want to provide students and staff a way to make a life saving difference.”
The Mobilize Rescue System uses an interactive app that unites the knowledge and equipment bystanders need to respond to medical emergencies. The easily downloadable app will help bystanders assess, manage, and monitor medical emergencies (such as severe bleeding, cardiac arrest, opiate overdoses, seizures, choking, and hypothermia) in conjunction with the supplies in each Mobilize Rescue unit. Since studies have shown that the effectiveness of CPR/AED training decreases over time (92% of participants failed the hands-on skills exam one year after training), having an app with a ‘just-in-time’ refresher course provides a valuable fail-safe for anyone looking to prepare for unexpected medical emergencies.
"Training enough staff and faculty members to save lives is one of the biggest obstacles that schools face in preparing for medical emergencies,” said Guy Gioeli, Director of Training and Education at Mobilize Rescue Systems. "The Mobilize Rescue App eliminates that obstacle by providing a simple, effective means of putting life-saving knowledge into the hands of willing bystanders.”
Mobilize Rescue Systems’ new technology provides a cost-effective method to equip entire communities, organizations, schools and individuals to stop massive bleeding while EMS is en route. The Mobilize Rescue System has been implemented by federal and law enforcement agencies, security and investigations agencies, K-12 schools and universities, public and private organizations, and has already been used to manage multiple medical emergencies across the country.
"We are on a mission that started as a discussion with Nicole Nixon, a local PTA president and candidate for the Oklahoma state house,” said Hanson."We are now working with Nicole to reach out to local businesses in an effort to fund the deployment of Mobilize Rescue units in our public schools.”
