Anne Arundel Medical Center, Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh, Leadership Anne Arundel, the Anne Arundel County Fire Department and the Annapolis Fire Department recently announced the launch of PulsePoint, a free-to-download mobile app that alerts CPR-trained citizens of cardiac events in their vicinity, so they may administer aid while professional responders are in route. The app also informs responders and emergency dispatchers of nearby public automated external defibrillators (AEDs).
Every two minutes, someone dies from sudden cardiac arrest. Survivability depends greatly on receiving immediate CPR. 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.
