The PocketCPR is a small device that fits under the rescuer's hand and both prompts the rescuer to take specific steps in the event of an SCA and coaches the rescuer in the delivery of high-quality chest compressions
The importance of being able to provide continuous, high-quality chest compressions
during emergency situations, while also freeing up first responders to attend to the critical needs of patients, is paramount when every second counts," Yurong said.
Q-CPR, available only on the Philips HeartStart MRx Monitor/Defibrillator, is the first and only comprehensive technology integrated into a monitor/defibrillator that provides real-time CPR monitoring and feedback for both chest compressions
and ventilations (breaths).
The AutoPulse helps provide the consistent, uninterrupted chest compressions
called for by the European Resuscitation Council Guidelines.
Most importantly, if you witness a child suddenly collapse, such as an athlete on the field, and suspect cardiac arrest, perform at least chest compressions
until medical help and a defibrillator arrives.
One study demonstrated that standard CPR performed at the conventional ratio of 15 chest compressions
to 2 ventilations resulted in a total of 308 chest compressions
during the 8-minute period that paramedics take on average to respond.
ZOLL's Real CPR Help has been demonstrated to effectively help guide rescuers to the correct depth and rate of chest compressions
with the goal of improving survival from sudden cardiac arrests.
System must be radiolucent and can be used without external power, ie used with rechargeable battery, which has a running time of at least 45 minutes.
Jolife AB, founded in 2000, develops and manufactures the LUCAS Chest Compression
In standard chest-compression CPR, which has been in practice since the 1960s, the rescuer pushes on the chest and blows into the subject's mouth twice for every 30 chest compressions
In real-world situations, rescue personnel can't maintain continuous chest compressions
when they are, for example, carrying a patient down a stairway on a stretcher, or carrying a patient across a lawn to a waiting ambulance.
Improving the quality of cardiopulmonary resuscitation skills among both the lay public and health care professionals is the theme of the American Heart Association's new guidelines--and optimizing chest compression
is the means to that end.
