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 lets you report and update AED locations so that emergency responders – nearby citizens trained in CPR or local firefighters, police or medics -- can find an AED close to them when a cardiac emergency occurs.
You and PulsePoint AED can help strengthen the chain of survival for cardiac arrest victims. Download PulsePoint AED for free and use it to report AED locations wherever you see one. Snap a picture, make some quick notes, and the information is stored for local authorities to verify. After that, the AED location data is made available to anyone using the PulsePoint citizen responder app (also available for free in the Google Play store). PulsePoint Respond is the app that alerts citizen responders who know CPR to local emergencies near them and also to the location of the nearest AED.
Not only do all validated AED’s become visible in the PulsePoint Respond app, all collected AED information is provided to the local emergency communications center for instant display on dispatcher consoles during calls for assistance. This allows the dispatchers to direct callers to nearby public AEDs when necessary.
PulsePoint AED is a great way to crowd-source lifesaving information. Users of PulsePoint Respond and subscribing local emergency responders all get updated information about the AEDs in their communities. With PulsePoint AED and PulsePoint Respond, citizens, responders, and care providers can work together in their communities to help victims in a cardiac emergency.
PulsePoint AED and PulsePoint Respond are produced by the PulsePoint Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to empowering everyday citizens to provide lifesaving assistance to victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
Engineering for the applications is provided by skilled volunteers from Workday, Inc. and are marketed and implemented by Physio-Control, Inc. makers of Lifesaving Tools for Lifesaving Teams since 1955.

Narrowing the gap is crucial and this app does it. Love the first aid tools available. Glad to be giving back to the community wherever we travel.
As a heart attack survivor I know how important AED'S are. Register an AED and Save a life. One day it may save yours.
This paramedic couldn't be more proud of the guy who came up with this. IT SAVES LIVES!!!!
Always know where the nearest AED is. Share with others so they can save you too.
Download save a life its that simple.
Pulse point saves lives!!!
I cannot take pictures despite claims the samsung bug was fixed. Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 5.0.1
Enjoying everythings, but it was a great time to get a free shopping resource for the orientation roomssssss.
Crowd sourcing AED locations seems to be a chancy business.
I absolutely love the idea of both this app and the Pulsepoint Respond app. However, I've had recurring issues of the app crashing, particularly when I'm trying to add photos to an AED entry. Additionally, I know you can mark an AED as "missing," but there's an AED entry in a blatantly wrong position...is there any way to get it removed so that there is no confusion during an actual emergency? Thanks for helping to make AEDs more accessible!!
Nearly perfect.. - Has integration and a share feature with Twitter so you can bring multiple identities to application use (store investigations, risk protection). - A user would have to be proficient at design, creative writing, security, establishing trusted relationships with police, Intelligence and Laughing Like Crazy (MDAO) to create the ultimate Red Cross (or whatevr the vendor of defibs) sales tool. - Add CrossFit to the mix with multi-city transportation by city buses and memberships to 24 hour gyms and you have the recipe to become the next @Schwarzenegger. - Sleep at area homeless shelters to improve availability of device in your local city, or hotels (defibs on every floor) to blow this game out of the water.

Was able to add one.
Thanks for all your efforts in making such a polished app capable of aiding the of saving lives.
Great idea! Nice implementation. I take it that 'private' Accessibility means it is behind a door that one must ask to enter and then ask to use the AED. Not sure what 'Type' selection means. the choices are Crowd and Production.
Does not show my location.
Find an AED near you.
App is slow to load.
Does not have an option to create your own username and password. Will not let you use the application unless you sign in with Facebook or Google+ password. Feedback link does not work , perhaps without password being entered.
There doesn't seem to be a way of uploading a stored pic, so adding an image always has to happen right at that location (which doesn't always have a good signal). Also, it wouldn't acknowledge my login through Google+ after a while. Currently attempting a re-install.
A person of love and compassion to help other in need no matter the ordeal. Just which the site for Anderson, S.C. would stay up and running.
Works great! No problems encountered for the 3 months of use.
Doesn't find my location. Very frustrating.
Thought it might show that all Casinos have AEDs and I'm pretty sure most schools...I may be wrong!!
Better then Google map. Lol. No Seriously. ! Locating an AED is almost a secondary issue. Tho Seriously nice to have in an Emergency. User friendly easy-to-use job well done
1 of the greatest ideas ever to surface.
In 1 day this used almost 90mb of data I think there might be an issue with the app
Why do I get a location of an AED but no directions.it's at a fire station, if you are driving and need help directions to the nearest fire station would be great anyway
This will definitely save lives ~ keep sharing it!
But lacking many locations to render it useless in a real emergency
Saw this app on Good Day L.A. and this should be a lifesaver literally! Hope it's put to use to its full potential.
Needs more people to help put in the AED's for our area. It is a great app.
What a wonderful way to help your community and the app is flawless .
Great app would recommend to anyone who's not sure on what to do at times
That App work great but you have to remember to turn on your GPS/Location button for the App to work. It is mainly a database for AED location near your location.
App is slow to load.
I like to know what is going on in and around my neighbor hood.
Look'n at 5 locations and Nothing? Very Disappointed Pasadena, CA
