Abstract

Heart disease is one of the main causes of death around world, claiming approximately 17.3 million lives annually, 43% are of cardiovascular disease. Heart ailment can be drastically curtailed by new innovations like with SOS Heart app patients receive immediate emergency assistance in inaccessible areas by performing CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) & AED (Automated External Defibrillator) and other medications. In Heart attack, proper care in first 2 to 3 hours after an incident can increases the rate of survival. The purpose of this field SOS Heart app is to provide quick assistance to the victim in public places by Smart wrist watch which measures physiological parameters and mobile which connected to smart watch via Bluetooth.
