PulsePoint AED | Download the app & Save a LIfe

When a cardiac emergency strikes, finding an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can help save a life. But that takes knowing where AEDs are located.

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

PulsePoint AED is a simple yet sophisticated tool to record and share AED location information. You can help even before a life is in danger by easily identifying public access AEDs throughout your community. Direct citizen participation can also help create greater location awareness and mindfulness of the important role AEDs play in out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival.

Once AEDs are identified, their locations can be viewed by anyone using the PulsePoint AED app–or the PulsePoint Respond app–in PulsePoint connected communities.

Problems discovered with AEDs already in the registry, such as a closed business or an AED that is no longer present where shown, can easily be reported right in the app–helping to keep the registry accurate and reliable.

Bar Harbor has been using PulsePoint AED for four years now and is starting to be rolled out throughout Hancock County.
