Idee: Miguel de Vega Rodrigo, München

People suffering from a heart attack need immedi-ately help to protect their health no matter where theyare. Up to now this persons are dependent on otherpeople who give or ask for help.

It is realized through a portable electrocardiograph(ECG) which is connected to a mobile phone. On theone hand this system will be able to warn the userwhenever the ECG shows that there might be a pos-sible danger of a heart attack and on the other handwill inform an emergency service provider like anambulance service or� hospital.� This� notificationincludes all informations which are necessary for thiscase like the� position� of� the� patient,� his� medicalrecords and the current conditions of the patient. Theemergency service provider may send help instruc-tions regarding first aid in text messages appearingon the screen of the mobile phone for persons thatmight be near the patient.
