St. Elizabeth Healthcare and local 911 dispatch centers have partnered together to bring you PulsePoint, a cutting-edge mobile technology that helps save lives.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is PulsePoint?
PulsePoint is a smartphone app (Android™ or iPhone®) that alerts users who are trained if someone nearby, in a public place has called 911 with an emergency that requires CPR. Only users within a .25 mile radius are notified and only incidents that take place in a public place trigger a notification.
We know that when someone goes into cardiac arrest, every minute is critical. With this app, a trained bystander can be alerted of a medical emergency, and in some cases, begin CPR before medical help arrives. A related app can also help users find nearby AEDs.
