A quick set up, the option to include ventilation with chest compressions and hands-free operation of our automated CPR compression machines gives physicians the ability to focus on other aspects of the resuscitation effort.
Attempting to deliver consistent, high quality cardiac compressions in transport is extremely difficult, but our automated CPR devices can be securely applied to the patient throughout transport, avoiding any interruptions in life saving CPR.
Life-Stat and Thumper CPR devices are lightweight and easy to use. They support a quick transition from manual to automated CPR with minimal interruption to compressions. They also offer the ability to perform CPR on larger patients than other competing devices.

What Makes Michigan Instruments’ CPR Devices Different?
Our CPR chest compression machines deliver the highest quality care during the treatment of cardiac arrest. They are easy to use and are light enough to be easily incorporated into a hospital’s “crash cart” set up. Setting up the unit takes seconds and requires minimal interruption to CPR. With the Life-Stat, the chest compressor and ventilator are built into the unit, providing your medical team with a totally hands-free, automated CPR solution.
“We cover 465 square miles in a tourist area of Georgia. We currently deploy two LIFE-STAT mechanical CPR devices. We’ve used Michigan Instruments’ THUMPER units since 1980. Our crews love using the LIFE-STAT because it takes the guesswork out of CPR. It’s easy to apply and only takes seconds to switch over from manual to mechanical compressions, which is important in reducing time off the chest of the patient. A human can’t match the consistency of the compressions offered by the LIFE-STAT, especially in the back of a moving ambulance.”
David McCallEMS Chief
“We decided to purchase the LIFE-STAT 1008 not only because of its ease of operation but because it can also be utilized as a ventilator and serve as an extra resource to us on emergency scenes, allowing our crews to handle essential ACLS functions and not be tied up with airway and compression functions en route to the hospital. We also like the fact that it operates off of our existing oxygen systems and doesn’t require us to have to worry about batteries being constantly changed out or failing during life-saving emergencies.”
“For many years I have worked in a Level 1 Trauma Center in downtown Detroit. …Good organization, the right tools and a qualified staff are critical when we have a code for cardiac arrest. …We have used the “Thumper” for many years and two years ago we upgraded to Michigan Instruments’ latest CPR device, the “Life-Stat”.
…The Life-Stat is our main tactical lifesaving tool in the treatment of cardiac arrest. We count on the Life-Stat every day and it consistently gives the patient the best chance for survival. …I have personally witnessed, many times, patient lives that were saved because of the Life-Stat equipment.”
