Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States.  Early application of bystander cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and defibrillation from an AED dramatically improve a person’s chance of survival.

Yamhill Communications Agency (YCOM) is taking steps to connect those who know CPR with those who need it through implementation of the PulsePoint program, which consists of two lifesaving smartphone apps:

  • PulsePoint Respond
  • PulsePoint AED

PULSEPOINT RESPOND

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).

   PULSEPOINT AED

When a cardiac emergency strikes, finding an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can help save a life.  But that takes knowing where AEDs are located.

PulsePoint AED lets you report and update AED locations so that emergency responders, including nearby citizens trained in CPR and off-duty professionals such as firefighters, police officers, and nurses, can find an AED close to them when a cardiac emergency occurs.

Describe the location, snap a picture, and the information is stored for local authorities to verify.  After that, the AED location data is made available to anyone using the PulsePoint Respond.
