DENVER, CO, May 21, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Today, HealthONE and AirLife Denver announced AirLife Mobile, the AirLife Denver mobile application. This app was created to offer information about emergency helicopter response and to facilitate additional information on AirLife Denver emergency medical and critical care transport services to the Rocky Mountain Region.
The app provides specific reference materials, checklists and safety information for EMS and critical care providers. For registered first responders, AirLife Mobile will allow them to link directly to the AirLife Denver communication center to pinpoint coordinates, alert the flight crew of a pending transport, streamline communication and decrease response times.
"We are constantly working to improve our patient care through innovative technology, procedures and leading-edge equipment," said Linda Gray, program director for AirLife Denver. "We strive to provide the highest standard of care in the medical industry, and this app is just the next step towards better communication of important information to our EMS partners."
Additional app features include:
Intubation checklist and RSI protocols
Educational references and courses
AirLife Denver photos, videos and contact information
Important safety information such as LZ diagrams and Helicopter Safety
Allows EMS agencies to activate an AirLife helicopter, attach and send pictures of an accident or other medical situation, and send location coordinates to an AirLife helicopter
The app will work on iPhone devices running iOS 6.0 or later. The AirLife Mobile app is free and available for download at the App Store (iOS): https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=864304027&mt=8
