Inspiration: I come from a small village in Southern India. It was a quaint, little town with no major hospital within 30km of it. Most folks not taught first aid. On an untimely afternoon, my grandmother had low blood pressure and went into cardiac arrest, the "ambulance" drove to the hospital in the city. However, it was too late, by the time they reached, my grandma had passed away. There wasn't even a trained nurse and no defibrillator. On top of that, no one present knew how to do CPR. Doing CPR would have bought my grandmother the precious time in which she would have reached the hospital. The worst part is, she should not have died, the doctor had told us she would have survived if there was basic first aid at hand. That event really gave me the inspiration for this project. If anyone present knew how to do CPR, my grandma would have lived longer. They all had smartphones and if they had an app that would provide first aid procedures in an emergency, they could have given CPR.
What it does: Depending on a medical emergency, the user is given a series of steps to de-escalate the situation. In essence, it is a pocket first aid guide that gives personalized first aid procedures. Take for example, if my roommate is having a stroke and I was not trained in first aid, I would use this app and, it would tell me what to do. IN this case, I would be told to call 911 immediately, ensure that the person is breathing, put a warm blanket around the victim and reduce stress.
How we built it: We built it using various different coding languages such as python, CSS, HTML, SCSS, and flask. We created our presentation on beautiful.ai and planned out all of our steps using discord and a virtual whiteboard on miro.com.
Accomplishments that we're proud of: The amount of progress we made being a rookie team.
What we learned: Since most of the team was composed of beginner programmers, we got to learn a lot from our more experienced teammates. We understood the intro coding.
What's next for QuickClinic: We want to expand linguistically, into French (which we have already translated) and Japanese, to incorporate more diversity into our project, and to assist more people who speak languages other than English. Also, we want to add more information about different conditions such as seizures, drowning, etc. Finally, we would love to have educational usage as well where it can be used to teach up and coming lifeguards in official lessons and also for personal learning.
