About this app

PulsePoint AED is a simple-to-use tool that enables you to help build the public AED registry in your community!

AEDs that are managed using PulsePoint AED are assessable to emergency dispatchers and disclosed to emergency responders, including nearby citizens trained in CPR and off-duty professionals such as firefighters, paramedics and nurses. Instead of asking the caller if there is an AED available, dispatch center staff can inform callers of nearby lifesaving devices.

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 community registry https://vimeo.com/pulsepoint/AED-Android 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. Let’s save some lives together!

What’s an AED?
An AED (automated external defibrillator) is a lifesaving device that automatically diagnoses and treats cardiac arrest. AEDs are common in public places such as offices, airports and other locations where people congregate. The instructional audio prompts provided by an AED are like having a coach over your shoulder walking you through key life-saving steps. CPR can sustain life until emergency responders arrive, but an AED can restart a heart. If an AED is available, use it! An AED will not deliver a shock unless needed.

Agency Registry Access
Public safety organizations are encouraged to review AEDs reported in their jurisdiction. The hosted solution offers a simple workflow to manage all registry tasks and provides the capability to view community AED information during call processing or directly within an EMD protocol. Instead of asking the caller if there is an AED available, dispatch center staff can inform callers of nearby lifesaving devices.

There is never a charge to use any aspect of the PulsePoint registry. PulsePoint is a public, non-profit organization providing the app and 911-connected AED registry as part of its core mission to improve cardiac arrest survival.

PulsePoint is a public 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation.

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"

App will not open. Crashes immediately upon opening. Have sent feedback multiple times and no response. When it was working, months ago, enjoyed it and used it to put AEDs on the map often.

Please try v2.0 rolling out in the Play Store now. May take a day or two for it to appear on all devices.

Any way to reward people to find and add AED devices? Its useless right now since there are no AEDs listed in my area. Not many people know about this app, dont have the time to find AEDs and list them only when they happen to come across one and remember to add it manually in the app. Advertise more. Same with the other pulse point app. It will take a while i understand. But i believe if theres a reward system it will be a start.
