In medical emergencies the first few minutes are crucial for saving lives. Every second counts especially in an untreated emergency event that can rapidly lead to a physical disability or death.
Of all medical emergencies, some 75% occur at home, work, or in public places. In case of an out-of-hospital emergency event, the probability of an equipped paramedic being close to the victim during the first few minutes is very low. The ratio between paramedics to the general population is poor, even in developed countries, and this ratio is not expected to improve in the coming years due to the high costs associated with training paramedics.
Worldwide, millions of people die every year as a result of the lack of an effective medical response in cases of emergencies before arriving at a hospital. Many more people suffer disabilities and a decreased quality of life as a result of medical emergencies, leading to a heavy economic burden on their families, community, insurers and governments. In most cases, lives could be saved or improved by the utilization of effective devices and comprehensive solutions at the out-of-hospital scene. Inovytec specializes in developing and commercializing innovative solutions for out-of-hospital medical emergencies enabling to dramatically increase survivability chances and patients’ outcome.
