Community Engagement

Building Internal Support

Successfully launching PulsePoint begins by ensuring that community stakeholders are familiar with the initiative and all program goals before the public announcement. Key colleagues at this initial stage include elected officials, command staff, employees and labor leadership, EMS partners, dispatch center and technology staff, and ancillary community organizations and sponsors.

Press Conferences

Press conferences are commonly held to announce PulsePoint coverage in a new community. Media outlets are alerted through an advisory or news release sent to local assignment editors well in advance of the event. Speakers typically include local elected officials, fire chiefs, EMS leadership, sponsors and other dignitaries. Locations are varied but are often a fire station, city hall, community center or other public venue.

Mobile-Phone Dispatch of Laypersons for CPR in Out-of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest

Findings:

Spacer

A mobile-phone positioning system to dispatch lay volunteers who were trained in CPR was associated with significantly increased rates of bystander-initiated CPR among persons with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Integration of mobile-phone positioning systems with AED registries may facilitate lay responders in locating the nearest AED and thereby increase efficacy in public-access defibrillation programs.

Almost 10,000 people voluntarily joined the program without any financial compensation, and no major adverse events were reported.

Strategies to Improve Cardiac Arrest Survival: A Time to Act

Author:

Date:

June 30, 2015

Findings:

Spacer

The immediate, hands-on response of bystanders to cardiac arrest is critical to improve rates of effective resuscitation and, thereby, increase the likelihood of survival and positive neurologic outcomes for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest.

Bystander CPR makes the next link in the chain of survival, early defibrillation, more effective by increasing the proportion of individuals who are found with a shockable rhythm.

Many national and international registry studies indicate that bystander CPR can increase survival rates for OHCA between 50 and 500 percent.

Theoretically, a member of the public could be sued for providing bystander CPR; however, the committee is unaware of any successful suit of this type.

Use of PulsePoint is discussed on Pg. 160-161.

Following a statewide educational intervention on rescusitation training, the proportion of patients receiving bystander-initiated CPR and defibrillation by first responders increased and was associated with greater likelihood of survival. Bystander-initiated CPR was associated with greater likelihood of survival with favorable neurological outcome.
