New Delhi/Calicut: A humanitarian par excellence himself, Dr. Azad Moopen, the benign NRI health honcho, always felt that there were countless Good Samaritans in the society raring to come to extend help in times of medical emergencies but they do not know how to help and whom to help.
Hence, Aster Emergency App, a platform to train and network volunteers in the nuances of dealing with medical emergencies and directing them to where help were urgently needed.
Through this App, his healthcare behemoth, Aster DM Healthcare, intends to serve the sick and save the lives in medical emergencies by capturing that valuable golden hour when life can be rescued from the jaws of death. Before ambulance reaches the spot, valuable basic life support can go a long way to save lives.
Talking to Medicare News, Dr. Moopen said, ‘Aster DM healthcare has created its own trained volunteers but there is no scarcity of such people in the society who want selflessly to serve sick and save lives in emergencies. I believe there is at least one Good Samaritan in the vicinity of every emergency. Only he or she is not aware that there is someone near who is gasping for help. My App can aggregate all those who are willing to sweat a bit for such needy people. Such initiative is need of the hour and can come handy in saving numerous lives by offering real time help. You have weekends, some idle time and want to use it in offering help to sick; this App is the thing for you.’
