A new aid provides voice and text prompts in accordance with 2015 AHA CPR Guidelines to help rescuers perform CPR.
The Intellisense CPR Feedback device, manufactured by Cardiac Science, offers motion sensor technology to inform rescuers when performing compressions how hard or soft to press down on someone.
To that end, 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 inches (5 cm) while avoiding excessive depths greater than approximately 2.5 inches (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
The device can fit into the palm of a hand and used on patients of all chest sizes. The place-and-press functionality requires no complex preparation or adjustments.
