Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a major cause of death. According to the World Health Organization 17.91 million people die each year of CVD. Many of these deaths (which occur in 85% of cases as a consequence of a heart attack or a stroke) could be avoided with a quicker access to medical emergency care.
Some could even be avoided with adequate drug treatment before the attack happens. But how can the medical staff know before the occurrence of the heart attack that it’s time for these medical cares (drugs, hospitalization)?
