CPR, when performed properly, increases a victim’s likelihood of surviving a cardiac emergency. As a result, the resuscitation community relies on evidenced-based guidelines provided by the American Heart Association (AHA) to perform effective CPR.
Recognizing the critical role CPR and these guidelines play in saving lives, Cardiac Science is proud to launch its new Intellisense CPR Feedback device, offering rescuers a slew of industry-first features and CPR coaching in accordance with the 2015 AHA Guidelines.
The CPR device’s technology supports several key findings in the AHA 2015 guidelines, including:
- Maintaining CPR compression rate of 100 – 120 / bpm
- Ensuring CPR chest compression depth of approximately 2 in. (5 cm) while avoiding excessive depths greater than approximately 2.5 in. (6 cm)
- Full chest wall recoils when the sternum returns to its natural or neutral position during the decompression phase of CPR
- Recommended use of audiovisual feedback devices during CPR for real-time optimization of CPR performance
Fitting in the palm of a hand, the device can be used on patients of all chest sizes, while a non-slip surface and ergonomic shape ensure secure placement during CPR. Additionally, the simple place-and-press functionality requires no complicated preparation or adjustments.
The CPR device is compatible with a Powerheart G5, providing voice and text prompts in either English or Spanish. It also features Rescue Ready technology, embedded smart circuitry, and self-tests for presence and functionality.
