Abstract

A person in a life-threatening situation is dependent on the first people at the scene of the event. The effectiveness of the rescue operations depends on the level of their training and willingness to help. The availability of professional services statutorily appointed to provide assistance is often insufficient. This is due to the failure of the system at all stages. Currently, work is carried out around the world to shorten the time of reaching people who have knowledge and skills in the field of first aid. This will allow us to take action in the first minutes that determine the survival when the victim is in a life-threatening situation. One of the tested solutions is the creation of mobile applications used by volunteers educated in the field of performing activities in the area of first aid in a life-threatening situation of the victim.
