A free CPR smartphone app called PulsePoint is now available in Albuquerque's city limits.
This smartphone app uses sophisticated location-based services and notifies subscribers who have indicated they are CPR trained* that a sudden cardiac arrest event is nearby. The alert is triggered by our 9-1-1 center at the same time that Albuquerque Firefighter EMTs and paramedics are dispatched.
The app uses advanced GPS technology to notify subscribers within a quarter mile of a cardiac arrest event and where the closest automated external defibrillator (AED) is located.
When a cardiac emergency strikes, finding an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can help save a life. But that takes knowing where AEDs are located.
Registering AEDs allows for the Albuquerque Fire Department to track the AED locations so that when an emergency occurs, responders and nearby citizens trained in CPR know where they're located.
