UC Health Partners with Cincinnati Fire Department to Launch PulsePoint Respond

OHA member UC Health on May 18 announced its partnership with the Cincinnati Fire Department to expand access to lifesaving care for cardiac arrest victims by alerting bystanders via app who are trained in CPR.

PulsePoint Respond is a 911-integrated mobile application that empowers everyday citizens to provide lifesaving assistance to victims of cardiac arrest. PulsePoint app subscribers who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and are willing to assist in case of an emergency can be notified if someone nearby needs CPR. The app also directs these potential rescuers to the exact location of the closest automated external defibrillator. Read the full press release here.
