PulsePoint and the Chain of Survival
Without bystander CPR and AED administration, when someone faces sudden cardiac arrest, their chances of survival drop 7-10% every minute with 9 in 10 out-of-hospital incidents resulting in fatalities 1. In 2021, El Paso and Teller Counties lost 1,096 citizens due to sudden cardiac arrest 2.
The PulsePoint AED registry allows for dispatchers to inform callers of the location of the nearest AED, allowing for early treatment to begin while first responders are in route. AED's provide audio and visual instructions for operation allowing any bystander to help** in a time of need.
Signs of sudden cardiac arrest include:
- Sudden collapse
- Loss of consciousness
- No pulse
- No breathing
**C.R.S. 13-21-108.1 (4a): Any person or entity whose primary duties do not include the provision of health care and who, in good faith and without compensation, renders emergency care or treatment by the use of an AED shall not be liable for any civil damages for acts or omissions made in good faith.
