The Mission Lifeline app is a mobile app for medical first responders and ER nurses to manage heart attack patients. The app is a collaboration between Ringful Health, American Heart Association, Capital Area Regional Trauma Advisory Council (CATRAC), as well as cardiologists, Emergency Room physicians, EMTs, and ER nurses from 22 hospitals and 25 emergency response services.
The app provides a step-by-step checklist to guide the first responder through the complex matrix of actions required to stabilize heart attack patients. The checklist items are dynamically generated for each patient based on individual circumstances such as diagnosis, medical history, and estimated time to reach hospital.
The app goes beyond real-time decision guides. It also captures the user’s response to each action item. Those responses can then be shared with other clinicians at hand off (ie from medical transport helicopter to hospital ER), as well as later via email.
The app is currently available on Apple iPhone and iPad. An Android version is in the works.
