Only about one third of sudden cardiac arrest victims receive bystander CPR, and public access Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are used less than 3% of the time when needed and available. Currently, there are far too few bystander rescuers – not too many. The goal of the app is to engage additional bystanders in these lifesaving acts. Thank you for helping us change these statistics and save more lives!

How does PulsePoint work?
A CPR notification arrives as a normal push notification. This notification will be accompanied by a distinctive alert tone. Opening the notification will load the PulsePoint app. The screen will display your current location, the general reported location of the cardiac arrest victim, and any nearby AEDs (defibrillators)
To receive a "CPR Needed" activation, you must have the CPR notification type selected in the Settings Menu and you must be in the immediate vicinity of a reported cardiac arrest
The app aims to notify those essentially within walking distance of the event location.
