El Camino Hospital is privileged to bring this life-saving smartphone application to the Santa Clara Valley. PulsePoint’s location-aware technology notifies app users who have indicated they are CPR-trained when someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may need CPR. The app also directs citizen rescuers to the nearest Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
The first in a series of rollouts made possible by El Camino Hospital, PulsePoint is now available to the San Jose Fire Department service area and will be made available to additional communities in the Santa Clara Valley over the next year.
If you don’t know CPR but you would like to learn it, watch a hands-only compression video on the American Heart Association's website, download one of the AHA's smartphone apps with instructions on hands-only CPR, or attend a local CPR training class. El Camino Hospital offers infant CPR training classes, too.
