CPR? There's an app for that
This is a great idea.
Smartphone users notified of nearby cardiac arrests“I am more than just a serious basketball fan. I am a life-long addict. I was addicted from birth, in fact, because I was born in Kentucky.”

How about an AED app? Plug the pads into the headphone or USB jackSo you call this your free country
Tell me why it costs so much to live

I like the idea of knowing where the closest AED would be. With AEDs starting to pop up in more and more places, I could see this being adapted to be used by dispatch centers to let callers know when one is in close proximity.
But as far as alerting people to go help? Ehhh... How many times do we get dispatched for a "cardiac arrest" only to find the pt just passed out or better yet, sitting there talking to us when we get there?
