The app, which is live in our community as of March 31, 2017, is free and works in both IOS and Android systems. Once downloaded, it’s simple to set up. PulsePoint allows the app users to see active 911 calls as they’re happening in the ACCESS 911 system, while keeping information generalized enough so private patient information is protected. PulsePoint only notifies CPR-trained civilians when 911 calls occur in public areas and will not send them to residential cardiac arrest calls.
We’ve all likely wondered, at one time or another, if there was a way we could be notified if a neighbor or friend needed help. With PulsePoint, we now have the ability to receive notifications if a cardiac arrest occurs anywhere near us. This app will save lives by helping initiate CPR until first responders arrive on scene.
ACCESS is now rolling PulsePoint out to the public to inspire CPR-trained civilians (as well a providers) to download the app. PulsePoint has been successfully implemented across the country and is improving overall survival of cardiac arrest victims.
