About this app

PulsePoint AED is a powerful tool to build, manage and mobilize an emergency AED registry. Registered AEDs are accessible to emergency call takers and disclosed to those nearby during cardiac arrest events.

AEDs are lifesaving devices that automatically diagnose and treat cardiac arrest and are commonly available in offices, airports, schools, businesses and other public places.

The registry grows when PulsePoint AED app users submit the location of unregistered AEDs in their community, making these lifesaving devices easier to find and use when a cardiac emergency strikes. PulsePoint AED also records and displays other lifesaving resources placed at AED locations, including Bleeding Control Kits, Naloxone (e.g., NARCAN®) and Epinephrine
(e.g., EpiPen®).

Watch this brief video to see just how easy it is to add an AED to the registry

You can also add an AED to the registry anytime by simply entering aed.new into your browser.

If you are trained in CPR and willing to assist during a nearby cardiac emergency, please consider downloading the companion app, PulsePoint Respond.

Public Safety Agencies
The PulsePoint-hosted Emergency AED Registry is integrated with leading emergency medical dispatch (EMD), pre-arrival instruction, and tactical map vendors, including ProQA Paramount, APCO Intellicomm, PowerPhone Total Response, and RapidDeploy Radius. These strategic integrations allow telecommunicators to inform callers of the exact location of registered AEDs
within familiar applications and workflows. There is never a charge to use or add to the registry.

I have to give it low stars right now cause i dont know how to search the area for the closest! Sure if i open the map and expand it i can see where they are- add a search button to take you to the closest and allow for navigation directions... This doesnt work like that on my phone. Being AED/CPR certified i cant just pull the app up, throw my phone to a person and say "go get it"

Good app. Easy to use. It would be nice to be able to add locations when you are offline. I don't have data on my phone (I know I am in the minority) so I can add locations when I am connected to wifi but I can't add pictures unless I have wifi where the AED is. It would be useful to be able to add pictures stored on my phone. Thus if there is no wifi I can snap a picture of the AED and add it later when I am connected.

Natalie- Unfortunately the mapping requires an internet connection.

Today while shopping at my local Walmart, my pluse point alarmed and tod me where in the store assistance was needed. There was no AED on site but 911 had dispatched an ambulance. The patient was dusky gray and nauseous. He was alert but in very obvious distress. He had a history of cardiac problems. I am so glad I was able to support the store staff who were doing a fantastic job and to assist the patients wife. This app is wonderful!

Donna- you might place this review for PulsePoint Respond (red icon) as that app is the SCA notification app. This app allows you to add AEDs to our registry.

What's new

Would you be willing to bring your AED to someone in need? If so, you can now receive real-time notifications of cardiac emergencies near the location of your AED by simply registering them with PulsePoint – regardless of manufacturer or model.

Adds Single Sign-On (SSO) support for use with PulsePoint Central.
