Life-Stat Mechanical CPR Device

Model 1008
Full Description

The Model 1008 Life-Stat Mechanical CPR Device is an innovative machine and the result of more than 48 years of incremental development.

Years of development have created this modern, automatic CPR Machine with many innovative and valuable benefits. What originally began as the Model 1001 Life-Stat has evolved through the years to become an industry-leading chest compression machine.

International pricing may vary.

Life-Stat Specifications

The Life-Stat Mechanical CPR Device meets 2010 AHA CPR Guidelines for chest compression and ventilation.
  • 30:2 Compressions-to-Ventilation ratio for face mask application (30:2 mode) or
  • Continuous compressions and 9 asynchronous ventilations for advanced airway application (CCV mode)
  • Chest compressions at 100 per minute
  • Adjustable chest compression depth from 0 to 3.2 inches (0 to 8cm) provides the AHA required “at least 2 inches (5cm)” for adults or 1.5 inches (4cm) if needed
  • Compressions are 50:50 systolic to diastolic ratio (50% compression length)
  • Automatic Transport Ventilator (ATV) delivers 0 to 1 L tidal volume coordinated with compressions
  • Able to switch from 30:2 to CCV mode without interruption

Electronic control coordinates chest compressions with built–in ventilator.


Compressions only at 80/min. (1.4.4)

No built-in coordinated ventilator.


Compressions only at 100/minute. (6.2)

No built-in coordinated ventilator.

Provide Hands-Free fully compliant Continuous AHA CPR


Delivers 100 compressions with 9 asynchronous ventilations per minute.

No built-in coordinated ventilator.


Compressions only at 100/min. (6.2)

No built-in coordinated ventilator.

Adjustable Compression Depth


Adjustable from 0 to 3.2 inches.

Has the capability to adjust compression depth to accommodate patient size.


Automatically set to 20% of chest depth. (1.4.4)


No adjustment. (6.2)

Transfer time from ManualCPR to MechanicalCPR with minimal interruption of compressions


In ~ 5 seconds, can swing piston into position during a manual CPR ventilation phase with virtually no loss of compressions.

Fastest switch-over from manual to mechanical CPR less likely to jeopardize effective Coronary Perfusion Pressure (CPP) and blood flow to the brain.


Slower (usually > 30 seconds), must (a) position LifeBand® properly (3.1) and (b) make required control selection. (3.2)


Slower (~ 20 seconds), must (a) position board under patient, (b) attach side clamps and adjust piston both horizontally & vertically interrupting compressions 2 times. (3.3)

Can operate while attached to a spineboard


Uses MII Patient Restraint System (PRS).

Higher mobility in stairwells, while providing continuous CPR support, including ventilation.


First apply AutoPulse® to patient then multiple rescuers lift patient onto transportation device and then secure patient to device. (3.6)


First apply LUCAS™ to patient then 3 rescuers minimal recommended to lift patient (while stopping compressions) onto stretcher. (3.7.2)

Features & Benefits of Life-Stat Mechnical CPR

Perfect, Hands-Free, Automatic CPR

Let the CPR machine do the work for you! When set up properly, the Life-Stat delivers CPR to the patient in accordance with the 2010 AHA guidelines. Compressions are uninterrupted.

Lightweight and Easy to Operate

The Life-Stat (including the base and backboard) weighs 19.5 lbs. (8.8 kg) and is stored in a case that fits easily into standard ambulance storage compartments. Setting the unit up takes seconds and requires no interruption to CPR.

Invaluable to Rescue Teams

When we say hands-free, automatic CPR, we mean it! The chest compressor and ventilator built into the Life-Stat take care of two of the jobs of any cardiac arrest response crew, allowing responders to focus on safety and other tasks.

Additional Benefits

  • Full limited warranty
  • 100% Oxygen driven
  • No expensive disposables
  • An electronic control module that facilitates the following:
    • Switch instantaneously from 30:2 to CCV mode
    • Pause/Resume feature
    • Uses long-life 9 volt battery
    • Batteries can be “hot swapped" while unit is running
