Prolonged use of Automated CPR aids in revival of hypothermia patient. Learn More…
Our mechanical CPR devices are easy to use and allow for a quick transition from manual to automated CPR with minimal interruption to compressions. Users have reported as little as 5 seconds total interruption to compressions during the transition from manual to automated CPR using our device.
Michigan Instruments mechanical CPR devices deliver consistent chest compressions to a depth and at a velocity that have been shown to provide improved blood flow to the patient’s brain. Our devices deliver a compression depth that is customized to each individual patient; when used as directed our devices deliver a compression depth that is 20% of the A-P diameter of the chest in accordance with AHA guidelines calling for a compression depth of at least 2 inches (5cm).
Manual CPR is physically challenging and can easily fatigue the caregiver, which could result in less than optimal CPR in extended situations. Mechanical CPR is not only uninterrupted, it can provide consistent chest compressions for as long as it takes. All you need is a connection to an oxygen source. There are no expensive batteries to manage and no concern about running out of battery if the code is extended.
Our CPR devices accommodate larger patient sizes than any other automated CPR device on the market. Both the Thumper and Life-Stat models can be used with a sternum height up to 14.5” and a chest width up to 22”.
Michigan Instruments CPR devices stay in place and make it easier for healthcare providers to work on other aspects of the patient’s care. No need to work around people providing chest compressions (and breaths). If necessary, Mechanical CPR can be paused and resumed with a push of a button, maintaining nearly complete access to the patient throughout the resuscitation effort. Our devices were engineered with a “C” arm design, providing more access to the patient than other wrap-around or enclosed models.
Physical limitations and fatigue of manual CPR can negatively impact the quality of resuscitation efforts. This can impact the patient’s chances of survival. In addition, manual CPR, when done properly, puts great physical demand on the caregiver, putting them at risk of injury. Michigan Instruments CPR devices help minimize these risks.
Michigan Instruments automated CPR devices offer the absolute best value in the market today. They offer the lowest acquisition cost and a very low ongoing cost of ownership. Request a quote to compare us now.
“What attracted our service the most to the LIFE-STAT CPR device was its ability to operate on our existing oxygen systems.”
“We didn’t want to spend money on a unit that would be restrictive on the size of the patients we could treat.”
“The Thumper helps us increase people’s chances to survive a cardiac arrest. Definitely!”
“One of the things I really like about the Life-Stat is the ventilation component that other mechanical CPR units don’t provide.”
“I have personally witnessed, many times, patient lives that were saved because of the Life-Stat equipment.”
“I have used a few automatic chest compressors in my practice (LUCAS, Autopulse, RESC-U pump) but this is my favorite device. I wish all pre-hospital and in-hospital healthcare providers use this device. Survival rate will increase dramatically..”
