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®).

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.
