VARNA is a wristband designed for Apple watch and other health-tracking wearable device users with heart disease. When nearby pedestrians are notified by the patient’s watch emergency notification in a cardiac emergency, the wristband may be detached from the patient and placed on the patient’s sternum, to assist pedestrians with no first-aid experience in performing CPR before medical help arrives. A device to greatly reduce the barrier to administering life-saving first aid, and greatly increase the survival rate of the patient.
