A Mechanical CPR Device is designed to help users provide the most effective chest compressions to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
These revolutionary pieces of resuscitation equipment are designed to recognize the quality of CPR given to a patient; using one allows victims to receive compressions which adhere to the recommended pressure, depth and speed to keep blood flowing to the vital organs and give the victim the best possible chance of survival.
What is CPR?
CPR or Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation is a technique which allows blood to continuously flow around the body to ensure the patient receives oxygenated blood to the brain and vital organs.
CPR can be administered by interlocking the fingers and positioning the body directly over the patient's chest. Keeping the arms straight, rescuers must push down hard and fast to ensure the body's organs receive oxygenated blood and the heart is kept in a shockable rhythm, ready for defibrillation.
What are the advantages of Mechanical CPR?
Using resuscitation equipment such as mechanical CPR devices helps to reduce the chance of injury to anyone administering CPR and providing the most effective CPR to a victim of cardiac arrest.
Using a mechanical CPR device also ensures consistent, quality CPR; even trained rescuers can become tired when delivering CPR which is why using resuscitation equipment can provide constant care at a high level.
