Clayton to announce launch of PulsePoint smartphone app to help improve community response to sudden cardiac arrest

The next time someone in Clayton suffers from sudden cardiac distress, a new app may help improve life-saving response time.

On Saturday, the East Central Dispatch Center will launch the PulsePoint smartphone app to help improve community response to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).

The agencies, made up of the cities of Clayton, Brentwood, Maplewood, Olivette, Richmond Heights, Rock Hill, Shrewsbury, Webster Groves plan to launch the PulsePoint CPR/AED smartphone app from the East Central Dispatch Center at 7447 Dale Avenue in Richmond Heights.

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. and will be open to the public.

The PulsePoint app helps improve community response to SCA victims by enabling citizen bystanders to provide lifesaving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and access a nearby public access automated external defibrillator (AED).

SCA is a leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for an estimated 325,000 deaths each year or 1,000 deaths per day.

Attendees will be able to learn about and help promote the life-saving app that directs CPR providers to those in need of CPR and locates the life-saving device, the Automatic External Defibrillator.

The American Heart Association estimates that effective bystander CPR, provided immediately after sudden cardiac arrest, can double or triple a person’s chance of survival. However, only about one quarter of SCA victims receive bystander CPR and even fewer receive a potentially lifesaving therapeutic shock from a public access AED. Improving bystander CPR rates and access to AEDs is critical to survival.

In addition, those in attendance will be able to hear from medical experts about how this app will save lives. Others will be on hand to tell stories and speak to sudden cardiac arrest survivors, who were saved by bystander CPR and Automatic External Defibrillator use.

All funding for the start-up of this project has been provided by an anonymous donor
