Watch Our Latest Video – Using Automated CPR In the Hospital
Did you know that in the United States alone, over half a million people suffer from cardiac arrest every year, with over two hundred thousand of those occurring in hospitals?
While the rate of survival following cardiac arrest is relatively low, experts agree that high-quality CPR can improve those chances, buying time for medical professionals to correct or reverse the underlying cause of the cardiac arrest.
Automated CPR provides consistent external chest compression, giving your patients their best chance of survival.
It’s been shown that it can be extremely difficult to sustain manual CPR for any length of time, especially at appropriate compression depths and the recommended compression rate of two-per-second. Mechanical CPR machines, like our Life Stat and Thumper devices, perform precise, programmed, hands-free CPR and never get tired. Shifting from manual to automated CPR can be done within seconds, and allows the medical team to focus on their assessment and treatment of the patient in an effort to reestablish spontaneous circulation.
There have been many documented cases where patients have recovered only after CPR was continuously performed for 15 to 20 minutes or more. Using the Life-Stat, high-quality CPR can continue as long as necessary, without interruption and without a deterioration in performance. All that’s needed is a high-pressure oxygen source.
Our Life-Stat CPR Device also provides hands-free ventilation, (per AHA recommendations) making it possible to provide AHA compliant CPR with fewer persons answering the code.
With the ability to accommodate patients large and small, The Life-Stat CPR unit’s compression depth and ventilator tidal-volume can be easily adjusted to match any patient’s specific needs.
