Enabling Citizen Superheroes - Get the App. Save a Life!
PulsePoint is a mobile app available for download on your phone that notifies users of a nearby
A cardiac arrest is an event where the heart stops beating and requires immediate interventions
such as CPR. The app alerts users within a certain radius of a cardiac arrest so bystanders who
know CPR can respond and provide care until professional responders can arrive.
PulsePoint AED is a simple-to-use app that enables you to help build the public AED registry
in your community - or anywhere!
When a cardiac emergency strikes, finding an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can help
save a life. But that takes knowing where AEDs are located.
AEDs that are managed using PulsePoint AED are accessible to emergency dispatchers and disclosed
to emergency responders, including nearby citizens trained in CPR and off-duty professionals such as
firefighters, paramedics, and nurses. Instead of asking the caller if there is an AED available, dispatch center
staff can inform callers of nearby lifesaving devices.
There is never a charge to use any aspect of the PulsePoint registry. PulsePoint is a public,
non-profit organization providing the app and hosted AED registry for free as part of its core
mission to improve cardiac arrest survival. Let’s save some lives together!
