The world's first emergency medical response mobile application, MUrgency, is providing free life support training to doctors, nurses, EMTs and paramedics enrolled on the One Global Emergency Response Network.

The MUrgency Training Program for Responders includes Basic Life Support (BLS) training; Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training; Automated External Defibrillator (AED) training and First Aid (FA) training; MUrgency Mobile App training; and Soft Skills training.

The medical training and certification will be provided by LifeSupporters Institute of Health Sciences, Mumbai, a certified international training center of American Heart Association (AHA).

"Preliminary assessment of healthcare providers has revealed that the 2015 AHA Guidelines on BLS and First Aid were not clear and they needed up gradation of their skills" said Dr. Ajay Desai, Director at LifeSupporters Institute of Health Sciences (LIHS), MUrgency's training partner.

Sweta Mangal, Director Global Emergency Response, MUrgency Inc. said, "We are building the ONE GLOBAL EMERGENCY RESPONSE NETWORK of responders (doctors, nurses, EMTs & paramedics) through a rigorous validation and training process. The medical professionals on the app will have the opportunity to have hands-on practice in Basic Life Support including CPR under the MUrgency's "BLS Lab On the Go" program, learn with audio visual training material and hands on practice."

MUrgency was launched on 16 Feb, 2016 in TriCity area in Punjab, India to assist people get instant emergency medical help with just one tap of their mobile phone. The app is growing both in user base and engagement in Punjab, India and is currently available on both Android and iPhones. (ANI)
