From Application Website

PulsePoint is an enterprise-class, software-as-a-service (SaaS) pre-arrival solution designed to support public safety agencies working to improve cardiac arrest survival rates through improved bystander performance and active citizenship. Where adopted, the PulsePoint app empowers everyday citizens to provide life-€saving assistance to victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Application users who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and willing to assist in case of an emergency can now 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 trained citizens in the vicinity of the need for bystander CPR simultaneous with the dispatch of advanced medical care. The application also directs these citizen rescuers to the exact location of the closest publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

    This app seems like it could really be a benefit to all persons, victims of cardiac arrest and also people who want to be involved in their community and want to be of service others. What a great idea it is to take citizens to are trained in CPR and notify them if someone is in cardiac arrest near them! It seems like it should be easy for agencies to set up and as a citizen seems easy to install and possibly become part of a lifesaving response to someone in need.

    This is an excellently conceived and created app that does more to involve members of the community in life threatening occurences than anything else I’ve seen. Kudos to the communities that have seen their way to implementing it!

    Nice features, good resource to locate a nearby AED. You can opt to receive alerts on many type of calls such as CPR. You will receive a notification if CPR is in progress near your location.

    The PulsePoint app allows everyday citizens (and off-duty health care professionals) to be an integral part of the emergency response network in any community. This story http://pulsepoint.org/2013/04/nurse-uses-lifesaving-app-to-find-try-to-help-man-in-cardiac-arrest/ about an off-duty nurse responding to a nearby cardiac arrest demonstrates the value of alerting nearby CPR/AED trained citizens. A systems approach that includes PulsePoint is likely to improve outcomes and partnering with the community brings other benefits to public safety agencies.
