Whenever the patient suffers from a health issue like sudden loses of consciousness or is about to collapse, he simply has to press the button. The signal is transmitted by radio waves to a console that can be 100 to 600 feet apart. The console is attached to the telephone line. It immediately calls the emergency number of the help line and all the details of the patient are flashed on the computer screen of the help line officer. The officer calls the patient's home immediately and tries to speak with the patient. In case the patient is not able to answer, he can immediately send a medical team in an ambulance to the doctor's house. He can also call the patients relatives or family members (if they are not in the house at the moment) and inform them about the patient's condition.
