Witnessing somebody suffer a heart attack can be extraordinarily traumatic, and even if you think quick enough to realize that you need to find a defibrillator to shock the person's heart back to somewhat stable functioning, you might not know where to start.

This is where the Automated External Defibrillator - Quebec app comes in. This particular app helps people located in the Canadian province of Quebec to whip out their smartphone to access a map that lists the locations of all defibrillators in the area, so that they can identify and find a defibrillator nearby.

The fact of the matter is that the difference between life and death can often be just a few seconds. By using ubiquitous smartphone app technologies, this app helps you find a defibrillator and potentially save a life if you ever find yourself in the undesirable situation of having to respond to a cardiac arrest.
