In September of 2018, Kent County announced the rollout of PulsePoint Respond®, a new high-tech tool designed to alert smartphone owners of cardiac arrest calls near their location, allowing them to respond and administer CPR immediately until first responders arrive.


GPS-enabled cell phones can be alerted, based on their location, to a CPR medical call and the closest automated external defibrillator (AED) in that area.


The product is free and intended for anyone with a smartphone who is trained in providing cardiopulmonary resuscitation. It works only for cardiac events in public venues, such as businesses, not in private residential settings.


Early application of bystander CPR and rapid defibrillation from an AED have proven to be crucial in improving a person’s chance of surviving sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). PulsePoint® is not limited to emergency responders or those with official CPR certification, as it can be used by anyone who has been trained in CPR.


To download the app, search for PulsePoint in the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores.
