  6. 6. 4/27/2012 New Technology Adoption“Safer Response” requires fast human intervention Technology focus is not robot replaces first responder Technology focus is sensing health of water and personsNew technology must be adaptable topractitionersPractitioners need to be receptive to proventechnology 6
  7. 7. 4/27/2012 Economics is Critical!Public and private facilities under stress Limited $, Limited thinking of decision makersCapital and training $ investmentVs Operating $ savings Labor efficiencies? Safer Response = reduced insurance premiums?Vs Lives saved by Safer Response 7
  8. 8. 4/27/2012 “Early Adapter” is criticalSuccessful trial by early adapter(s) is key To demonstrate efficacy To smooth “rough edges” Then other practitioners may follow Insurance underwriters may accelerate uptakeNew safety technology must prove itself to aconservative, low tech audience 8
  9. 9. 4/27/2012 Education is criticalEducation of decision makers [practitioners andrisk assessors] is a stumbling block To help them make better technology cost benefit tradeoffs One size does not fit all Introduction of new technology is a challenge, more to some than others 9
  10. 10. 4/27/2012 SAN DIEGO —Bob McGowan had never heard of an automated external defibrillator before July 2011. Now he knows they are life-saving machines. McGowan, 63, of Mission Beach, was one of four San Diego cardiac arrest patients in a six-day period to be treated with an AED provided by San Diego Project Heart Beat. “All four survived and that, in my opinion, is medical history,” said Maureen O’Connor, manager of Project Heat Beat, which has placed nearly 6,500 AEDs in public and private settings around the county in the past 10 years. “To us, it’s huge.” AED- AED- Automated External Defibrillator 10

  12. 12. 4/27/2012 ProjectCase Study #1 Heart BeatAED •Nov 2001- San Diego City Council & Cardiac Science to help promote the deployment training and implementation of AEDs. •May 2003-New York State -1st state to mandate AEDs in schools •April 2004-Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandates-that all large passenger-carrying US airlines carry and have personnel trained in the use of AEDs 12
  13. 13. 4/27/2012RescueCoach™Cardiac Science Powerheart AED G3 Plus 1. CALL 911with RescueCoach™ voice prompts to talkrescuers through the steps. 2. Turn The AED OnThe rescuer applies the defibrillationpads, the G3 Plus Automatic analyzes theheart rhythm and “knows” when todeliver(or not deliver) the shock. 3. Follow The AED InstructionsThe shock is delivered automatically, withno button to push, and no humanintervention. (also in semi-automatic)After the shock, the unit prompts for CPRwith a built-in metronome that sets thepace for proper chest compressions. 13
  14. 14. 4/27/2012SCA can strike people of any age or fitness level. Using an AED within one minute ofcollapse raises the survival rate to 90 percent. Resuscitation rates decline 7-10%every minute thereafter. An AED needs to be readily available to defibrillate SCAvictims quickly. Access and Education is critical 14
  15. 15. 4/27/2012 AED CPR Legislation EducationLegislation ModernizationLegal Expert Advocates Revamping AED and9-1-1 Laws Model Legislation Proposed To address the “complex quagmire” of current CPR Flash Mob state laws, Lazar proposes model AED and 9-1-1 legislation. The “AED Good Samaritan Immunity Vinnie Modernization Act” would provide easy-to- understand immunity to all AED program Hands Only participants and remove burdensome and complex immunity conditions. CPR with Rescue Breathing “The Lifesaving AED Location Emergency Communications Act” would require AED acquirers to report the location of devices to 9-1- 1 dispatch agencies and would require 9-1-1 dispatch agencies to receive AED location information and make it immediately available to 9-1-1 callers. 15

  17. 17. 4/27/2012New Application of Jet Ski Technology EMILY (Emergency Integrated Lifesaving Lanyard) can reportedly be deployed in 30 seconds, and at a top speed of 24 mph (39 kph) is able to reach a troubled swimmer much faster than a human would be able to. It’s propelled by a Jet Ski-style impeller, that sucks water in from the front and shoots it out the style back, and is able to flip itself back over if capsized in rough surf.

  20. 20. 4/27/2012Technology and Tradition Rowed rescue boats used by lifeguards are becoming a tradition of the past rather than a rescue implement of the present,” said B. Chris Brewster, president of the U.S. Lifesaving Association, a professional organization for lifeguards. He said surf boats are rarely used to guard beaches outside New Jersey. “There is a passionate adherence to the use of rowed rescue boats by some traditionalists. But the profession has evolved to use more modern and efficient rescue implements,” Brewster said.“If you move outside New Jersey, you don’t see rowed boats being used to rescue people. It is a uniquely iconic tradition there.” 20

  41. 41. 4/27/2012 Wireless Lanyard TechnologySafer Response Technology• Very few operators wear the cord type lanyard• No protection for passengers or crew• Wireless technology can prevent more accidents• Ease of use and wear 41
  42. 42. 4/27/2012Use and Benefit • CAST & VL interface within the boat’s ignition system. – Duplicates the standard “kill switch” when activated. • If someone is ejected from the boat, upon submersion the sensor will activate and shut off the motor. • Provides protection for every passenger or crew member, not just the operator. • Will not compromise the safe and normal operation of the boat. 42
  43. 43. 4/27/2012• CAST & Virtual Lifeline “wireless lanyard” systems were introduced in July 2005• NMMA selected VL as the “Innovation of The Year” winner for safety in 2005• VL was also chosen by the Canadian Boating Safety Council as their 2006 winner for “Safety Innovations”• VL is not in widespread use 43
  44. 44. 4/27/2012The Wahooo Sensor measures time ofsubmersion to 1/1000th of a second.When a swimmer is submerged for a presetperiod of time (considered by experts to be"precarious") a discreet Yellow Alert serves asnotification of a potential event.If the swimmer remains submerged for anadditional preset period of time (considered tobe "at risk"), a Red Alert is indicated. 44
