PulsePoint Mobile App

Application users who have indicated they are trained in CPR and willing to assist in an emergency can be notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR. The free PulsePoint app is available to Apple IOS and Android users. 

If the cardiac emergency is in a public place, the location-aware application will alert trained citizens who are nearby of the need for bystander CPR. This is done simultaneously with the dispatch of IFFD crews. The application also directs citizen rescuers to the exact location of the closest publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillator (AED), after the 9-1-1 system has been activated.  

For professional responders, nurses and physicians who are off-duty and may be away from typical emergency communications, PulsePoint not only notifies them of cardiac arrests occurring near them, but it also improves the flow of critical information needed during an emergency.
