Cardiac arrests can happen anywhere, that is why Automated External Defibrillators (AED) are often deployed in key areas (shopping malls, government buildings…) in many countries around the world. While performing CPR and early defibrillation is important, the arrival time for professional Emergency Medical Service (EMS) plays an important role in increasing survival rates with good neurological outcome. Therefore, the monitoring of these life saving machines becomes crucial in saving a life.

HTM Medico X UnaBiz
The largest AED distributor in Singapore – HTM Medico is working with UnaBiz to monitor their defibrillator around Singapore. According to statistics, in times of emergency, the first responders may sometimes forget to call the ambulance or paramedics while rushing to perform AED + CPR onsite. By inserting a contact sensor in the AED box, a notification of the emergency can be automatically sent to the nearby paramedics to ensure that medical assistance can be rendered in a timely manner.
