about this episode

For every minute you don’t have oxygen your chances of survival without brain damage decrease by 10%. In the first episode of our Revolutionary Apps series, we feature PulsePoint, a simple and brilliant app saving lives by connecting CPR-trained individuals to emergencies in the vicinity, thereby reducing this critical response time. Jason talks with President Rich Price, retired Fire Chief and career firefighter, who got the idea for PulsePoint after a fatal incident, when he realized that he could have prevented the tragedy had he known the man in need was right across the street from where he was dining. You don’t want to miss this!
