Automated CPR System

Within emergency medicine there is a requirement for high quality CPR. There are known limitations with manual CPR; but the emergence of technologies in recent years started to address the requirements to improve 
CPR and deliver new chest compression technology, to improve blood flow whilst performing CPR.
The main objective being to revive the patient and improve blood flow to the heart and brain.

2010 ERC Guidelines [Main changes since 2005] relative to CPR

  • Compression Depth: at least 5 cm
  • Compression Rate: at least 100/minute
  • Ensure chest recoil: 50%/50%
  • The importance of early, uninterrupted chest compression
  • Immediate return of chest compression following defibrillation is emphasized
  • The use of prompt/feedback devices during CPR is encouraged
  • Increased emphasis on the use of capnography to confirm quality of CPR

3rd Generation Technology:

Uses 3D Compression Cardiac and Thoracic Pump technologies:

3D Compression’ - 100% of the chest cavity is enclosed with the torso restraint. In addition it provides multi-point 
compression, the whole chest cavity is compressed to simulate heart pump function

In addition to vertical chest compression between sternum (chest bone) and spine, the torso restraint is placed underneath and around the patient to firmly secure the compressor on the patient; this allows compression of the whole chest cavity to promote instant blood circulation. Resulting in highly effective three dimensional chest compression (fig b). Research studies have confirmed  that 3D chest compression technology can shorten the compression cycle and the number of electrical shocks. Importantly using Weil SCC™ technology minimises rib fractures and neuro deficit. Weil SCC™ technology is non-invasive, improves hemodynamic efficacy during CPR and is the closest method to resemble the heart’s 3D pumping action.
