PulsePoint app review: view local medical emergencies in real time

Reviews

Introduction

PulsePoint is a very interesting app which is designed to empower ordinary people such as you and I with the ability to track medical emergencies as they happen and provide real-time medical assistance to people in our local area who are currently suffering from cardiac arrest.

If you’re trained in CPR then I would definitely suggest downloading this app and keeping it handy on your iPhone because you can set it up to notify you with an alert whenever someone needs help in your local area.

This definitely sounds like a worthy cause to me, and the app itself is very professionally developed so I would please urge you to consider checking it out.

The tagline for this app is “Enabling Citizen Superheroes,” and that is pretty much what you’ll become if you keep PulsePoint on your iPhone!

When you first start using this app, you’ll want to search in the Agencies section. This can be done either by agency, city, or zip code, and will enable you to find medical emergency services in your area so that you can receive notifications and information relevant to your actual location.

Selecting an agency will provide you with information such as the area it serves and a historical profile. By tapping the Follow button in the top right-hand corner you can receive updates in real time any time there is an emergency callout made by the given agency.

 

Save a Life Today!

I find this fascinating because you can tap onto emergencies as they appear on your feed and see where the emergency has been logged on a map.

This is incredible if you think about it because it means that you could potentially save lives while going about your daily business, simply by being in the right place at the right time!

Besides this, there is also a CPR How-To section which contains a detailed step-by-step guide for effectively performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation on a victim of cardiac arrest. This means that even if you’re not professionally trained in CPR, you can still take the initiative and potentially become a superhero yourself.

Amazingly, you can also listen in on radio dispatch exchanges to find out more about the status of the patient.

Final Words

PulsePoint looks great and works like a charm, but the bottom line is this: if you’re even remotely experienced with performing CPR, then keeping this app on your iPhone could potentially help you save a life.
