Abstract: Human lives are highly valued in all societies. People of all ages may experience at some point of their lives medical conditions that need special attention. These conditions may vary from minor to moderate to severe based on the degree and type of condition. However, no matter what the condition is in a state of emergency these conditions may become life threatening if it was not considered by health care professionals. Usually the person involved in an emergency situation informs health care professionals about his medical condition at the time of emergency and in turn health care professionals provide him with the special care that he may need. However, if the patient was unconscious and none of his relatives or close friends are around, health care people find it hard to treat that patient until all information about that patient is available. This may require running medical test which may prolong the delivery of treatment to the patient leading to dire consequences. To solve this problem once and for all, this study proposes the introduction of a mobile QR code life saver application to be used by health care professionals at the time of emergency. The application is based on a QR code technology that is already in place and used globally in many applications including marketing, archiving, asset tracking and document management among others.
