Life-sav­ing de­vice

Sunshine Coast Daily - - NEWS -

A NEW de­vice will give paramedics greater ac­cess to a pa­tient’s vi­tal med­i­cal in­for­ma­tion in an emer­gency. The SafeMate pro­gram is a dig­i­tal sys­tem hous­ing a pa­tient’s med­i­cal and per­sonal in­for­ma­tion they have en­tered on­line. “Paramedics will use their op­er­a­tional iPads to tap the pa­tient’s SafeMate card or de­vice, and the med­i­cal in­for­ma­tion will ap­pear on the screen,” Min­is­ter for Am­bu­lance Ser­vices Steven Miles said.
