At that point, I was taking a clinical delineation class that allowed me the chance to do perceptions in emergency clinics. While noticing, I caught an EMT discussing that it is so hard to perform mouth to mouth since it's trying to check pressure profundity. 

We at that point depended on our designing foundations and started to build up an answer: programming that can quantify chest pressure profundity and rate all from a cell phone. Our proceeded with research carried us to a CPR instructional course, where we understood we could utilize our innovation to make huge enhancements and bring CPR preparing into the 21st century.

We have been beta trying, repeating, and improving past variants for quite a long time and I'm eager to dispatch it to the general population. That being said, the move from appropriation of the application being controlled to being broadly accessible on the application store is an overwhelming one. Our greatest test right currently is attempting to ensure we see and moderate each possible entanglement before it occurs and guarantee that our dispatch goes easily. 

Q: What are a few objectives that you and your group have for the following year? What might be said about for the following five years?

In the following five years our biggest objective is to get FDA leeway on our CPR criticism programming for use during genuine crises. Moreover, we intend to extend our preparation contributions to give far off answers for different sorts of clinical preparing.
