Santa Cruz County Officials Announce App To Connect CPR-Trained Residents With Cardiac Arrest Patients
On Thursday, Santa Cruz County emergency services officials announced the county has implemented a mobile application, called PulsePoint, that will alert app users who are trained in CPR when an individual nearby experiences sudden cardiac arrest. The app will issue an alert to users within about 20 seconds after an individual contacts 911 with cardiac arrest symptoms.
