Pulse Point is an app you can install on your smart phone. If somebody near you calls 911 for a cardiac arrest, the app will alert you of this. If you know CPR and you’re willing to help, follow the app’s directions to get to the person who needs you. In this way, you can help to save a life.
BC Emergency Health Services has adopted the use of this app. So when there’s a cardiac arrest call, dispatchers will activate Pulse Point to send lay rescuers. First responders and paramedics will be paged as well, but we count on members of the public to begin CPR as soon as it is needed – this is key to helping a patient to survive a cardiac arrest.
