The Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust in the British county of Yorkshire is introducing a lifesaving app that is designed to make it easier for regular local residents to locate the nearest automated external defibrillator in case of an emergency.

The app, which features a database of nearly 1,300 defibrillators around the Yorkshire area, doesn't merely offer mapped location information, but also includes easy-to-understand videos that teach people how to use defibrillators and perform CPR on people suffering from cardiac emergencies.

Every year, thousands of cardiac episodes result in death simply because bystanders weren't empowered with the know-how to respond adequately, a problem that this lifesaving app is looking to eradicate in the county of Yorkshire.
