PulsePoint Respond empowers everyday citizens to provide life‐saving assistance to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. App users who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and willing to assist in case of an emergency can be notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR.
If the cardiac emergency is in a public place, the location-aware application will alert users in the vicinity of the need for CPR simultaneous with the dispatch of advanced medical care. The application also directs these potential rescuers to the exact location of the closest Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
A CALL TO ACTION
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time, but PulsePoint Respond empowers CPR-trained citizens to help improve patient outcomes and save lives by reducing collapse-to-CPR and collapse-to-deﬁbrillation times.
In addition to nearby “CPR-needed” notifications, your users can choose to be notified of significant events that may impact their family. These informational notifications provide an early and automatic heads-up to local threats such as wildland fires, flooding and utility emergencies. Improving situational awareness with PulsePoint can help build safer, stronger, and more resilient communities.
