Truck Driver App: Pulse Point


Pulse PointPulse Point is an app for Smartphones that’s literally a life saver.

It’s designed to help people who are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to help people suffering from cardiac arrest as fast as possible.

The app’s impressive ability to detect a person in the area suffering from cardiac arrest has already saved the life of one trucker, 47 year-old Drew Basse, in Tualatin Valley, OR.

A firefighter, Scott Brawner, was able to make it from a 24 hour fitness just in time to save Basse’s life thanks to the advanced technology of Pulse Point. We covered the story, and you can find it here!

Using Pulse Point, users are able to see the exact nearby location of a cardiac arrest on an interactive map for quick response in helping save a life.

The app works works with local 911 communication centers and gives the user real-time access to emergency activity as it is occurring.

This intuitive and innovate app may appeal to the trucker who has been trained in cardiac emergencies or any citizen who wants to lend a helping hand or know about emergencies in real time.

Pulse Point works on iTunes and is being used in about 600 cities and communities, with many more on the way.
