TVFR: PulsePoint Responder - In Her Own Words

Video recounts how a PulsePoint responder arrived on scene and began administering CPR

Tuesday, September 10, 2013


TualatinValleyFire on YouTube - March 27th 2013, TVF&R's PulsePoint mobile app notified three nearby citizen responders that someone near their location was in need of CPR. Heather Roms, who is an RN for Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, was just leaving a nearby business when she received the PulsePoint notification on her smartphone. Heather responded and began CPR until EMS crews arrived.

Heather stated that she heard about the app from her mother who works at a nearby middle school, and was happy to be available to respond and help. Today's incident marks the first time that a PulsePoint responder has arrived on scene and began administering CPR to a cardiac patient. The PulsePoint app enables subscribers who have indicated they are CPR trained to be alerted to a cardiac arrest event simultaneously with TVF&R's firefighters EMT/paramedics.

The PulsePoint app is available for IOS and Android phones.
