For victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), only one thing is certain – chest compressions will be required. Yet, manual compressions – even when they are done well – only provide 10% to 20% of normal blood flow to the heart, and only 30% to 40% to the brain.
Now, there’s an alternative. The only device of its kind, the ZOLL® AutoPulse® is a revolutionary non-invasive cardiac support pump that moves more blood, more consistently than is possible with manual compressions. Easy to use and battery operated, its load-distributing LifeBand® squeezes the entire chest. As a result, victims receive more consistent, high-quality compressions than those delivered by simple automated CPR devices, which means improved blood flow.
Essentially functioning as an additional person, it allows emergency rescuers to provide compressions while performing other lifesaving activities, or while transporting a victim down the stairs or in the back of a moving ambulance.
The AutoPulse cardiac support pump delivers improved blood flow without interruptions of fatigue and provides hospital caregivers better access to the patient, resulting in improved survival for cardiac arrest victims. In fact, the AutoPulse cardiac support pump has been shown to triple survival to hospital discharge.
