On average, heart diseases account for nearly 836,546 deaths in the US in 2017, according to the American Heart Association. Getting a timely cardiopulmonary resuscitation procedure (CPR) is crucial for many of those patients, and Zoll’s AutoPulse machine could be a life-changing invention for the first responders.
Zoll’s autoplus CPR isn’t just a machine wrapped around the patient’s chest. It comes with a carrier sheet that allows medical staff to stabilize the spine and start the CPR procedure on the go. The sheet allows the versatility of transporting the patient in tight space while keeping the CPR procedure intact.
The machine is powered by a portable battery, and it uses a distributing band to deliver the compression. The rate of compression could also be adjustable to the patient’s needs.
