Contest Rules

HELP BUILD YOUR COMMUNITY REGISTRY

Help us locate and register AEDs so their location is known by citizen responders and 9-1-1 dispatchers in the event of a cardiac arrest.

By registering AEDs with the free PulsePoint AED app, or online through AED.new during Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month (October) this year, you’ll be registered to win one of ten $500 Amazon gift cards. The more AEDs you register, the more chances you'll have to win. Collectively, the community that registers the most AEDs will be granted $5000 towards the purchase of new AEDs.

  • AEDs must be registered between October 1, 2021 and October 31, 2021 to qualify (contest period).
  • AEDs must be registered using the free PulsePoint AED app available on the App Store and Google Play, or online at AED.new.
  • Individual winners will be notified via the email address associated with their PulsePoint AED account no later than November 15, 2021. Winners will be asked to provide a mailing address to receive their gift card.
  • The community that collectively registers the most AEDs will receive a $5000 grant for the purchase of AEDs. Additionally, PulsePoint will assist with marketing efforts around the placement and registration of those AEDs.

Increase Survival

WHY CATALOGING AED LOCATIONS IS CRUCIAL

More than 350,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests (OHCA) occur annually in the U.S. making it a leading cause of death. Survival rates nationally for sudden cardiac arrest are less than 10 percent.

However, cardiac arrest victims who receive a shock from a publicly-available AED (automated external defibrillator) administered by a bystander prior to EMS arrival have 2-3 times better odds of survival to hospital discharge and more favorable outcomes. Without bystander AED use, 70 percent of cardiac arrest patients either die or survive with impaired brain function.

Despite the life-saving potential of AEDs, they are of no value if they cannot be located and placed into service during a cardiac emergency.
