Physio-Control, PulsePoint in Partnership to Boost SCA Survival

The AED maker will help meet the public safety agency demand for PulsePoint’s app that alerts CPR-trained citizens by smartphone to nearby sudden cardiac arrest emergencies.

Physio-Control and the PulsePoint Foundation recently announced their strategic partnership, which aims to improving sudden cardiac arrest survival rates and to meet the growing public safety agency demand for PulsePoint's CPR/AED mobile phone application, according to the companies. Physio-Control is an automated external defibrillator (AED) manufacturer based in Redmond, Wash., while PulsePoint is a non-profit providing mobile technologies to help everyday citizens save lives.

The app alerts CPR-trained citizens by smartphone of SCA emergencies in their proximity and provides the location of the nearest public access AEDs.

Physio-Control will promote PulsePoint to public safety agencies through its global sales and service teams and expand on PulsePoint’s capabilities for system implementation and support. "New mobile health tools are engaging the public in profound ways. I can think of no more important use of mobile technology than empowering citizens to save a life," said Brian Webster, president and CEO of Physio-Control, Inc. "PulsePoint's solution fits perfectly with our focus on improving the system of care, and I'm confident that increased frequency of bystander CPR and AED use will have a positive impact on sudden cardiac arrest survival rates."

"Physio-Control's mission of providing lifesaving tools to lifesaving teams aligns very well with ours," said Richard Price, president of the PulsePoint Foundation. "Their extensive experience working with the EMS community provides a tremendous platform from which to meet the growing demand for PulsePoint and ultimately improve the frequency of bystander CPR and AED deployments in more communities."
