This paper describes a heart attack self-test application for a mobile phone that allows potential victims, without the intervention of a medical specialist, to quickly assess whether they are having a heart attack. Heart attacks can occur anytime and anywhere. Using pervasive technology such as a mobile phone and a small wearable ECG sensor it is possible to collect the user's symptoms and to detect the onset of a heart attack by analysing the ECG recordings. If the application assesses that the user is at risk, it will urge the user to call the emergency services immediately. If the user has a cardiac arrest the application will automatically determine the current location of the user and alert the ambulance services and others to the person's location.
