With the recent spurt in technology and research in India in the last few decades, new techniques and drugs have lowered the mortality rate and helped save quite a few patients’ lives. But even with the latest equipment available in hospitals, a lot of people lose their lives just because they are not brought there in time. In serious cases, the time taken to provide medical help can be a prime factor in deciding between life and death.
How many times do we see an ambulance blaring it’s way to help a patient, only to be stuck in traffic? In some cases, a lot of people don’t even make way for the ambulance to go through.
Karnataka has come up with a brilliant solution for this: introducing medical help on two-wheelers. And how is this any different from ambulances you ask? These two-wheelers can get to the patient, battling through Karnataka’s traffic, before the ambulance arrives.
