3
  • Freedom…and piece of mind

4
Societal Problem
  • Many heart patients fail to receive assistance
    during a heart attack.

5
Problem Facts
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • A classification of disease of the heart (cardio)
    and blood vessels (vascular)
  • Coronary heart disease and stroke are the
    principal components of cardiovascular disease

National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention
and Health Promotion
6
Problem Facts
  • Coronary Heart Disease and stroke are the first
    and third causes of death in the United States
  • 40 of the overall population
  • About 950,000 Americans die of cardiovascular
    disease each year, which amounts to one death
    every 33 seconds

7
Problem Facts (contd)
  • Each year, about 1.1 million Americans suffer a
    heart attack. About 460,000 of those heart
    attacks are fatal.

PROPOSED SOLUTION
  • A portable device which monitors heart rate and
    looks for irregular heart activity that could
    indicate heart problems.

9
SOLUTION FACTS
  • SYMPTOMS OF HEART ATTACKS
  • Chest discomfort with lightheadedness, fainting,
    sweating, nausea or shortness of breath.
  • Increased or irregular heart rate.

10
SOLUTION FACTS (contd)
  • About half of the deaths stemming from heart
    attack occur within 1 hour of the start of
    symptoms and before the person reaches the
    hospital.
  • Our goal is to provide assistance within this
    critical period in an effort to decrease the
    fatality rate of heart attacks.

Target Market
  • People with heart conditions
  • People at risk for a heart attack

12
Market Analysis
  • Who is at risk?
  • Those with pre-existing coronary heart diseases 
  • Age
  • Men? the risk increases after age 45
  • Women? the risk increases after age 55
  • Family history of early heart disease
  • Controllable factors

PROS
  • Works with existing technology
  • Automatic response to irregular heart activity
  • EMS can be dispatched in case of emergency

18
CONS
  • Market limited to PCS network
  • Loss of PCS connectivity

19
DEVICE WILL
  • Indicate irregular heart activity
  • Send alert to call center
  • Call center will contact user
  • Call center will contact EMS in case of emergency

20
DEVICE WILL NOT
  • Prevent heart problems
  • Store historical data

21
Heart Monitoring System
22
Heart Monitor
23
Watch Interface
24
Technical Issues
  • Distinguishing between death and loss of signal
  • Location limited to PCS network

25
Technical Issues (contd)
  • What is PCS?

26
Resource Issues
  • Information technology investment
  • Staffing call center
  • Office space
  • Legal representation
  • General Business Overhead

27
Management Issues
  • Cost of running after development

28
Risk Analysis
  • Failure to detect heart attacks could lead to law
    suits

29
Conclusion
  • Heart disease victims may not be able to contact
    EMS in case of a heart related problem. Our
    device will automate this process giving piece of
    mind.
