Description

The ResQGARD® is an impedance threshold device (ITD) that provides a rapid, safe, and noninvasive way to improve perfusion in spontaneously breathing hypotensive patients. The ResQGARD provides therapeutic benefit as soon as a patient begins to breathe through it, and it is easy to discontinue (“ON/OFF” therapy). The ResQGARD increases blood pressure during hypotension from a variety of causes,1-6 for example:

Early sepsis
Orthostatic intolerance
Trauma/hypovolemia
Heat shock
Dialysis
Blood donation
Clinical and pre-clinical studies have shown that the ResQGARD ITD:

Increases systolic and diastolic blood pressure by up to 30%1
Improves cerebral blood flow2
Increases blood pressure in hypovolemic hypotension but not to levels typically associated with "popping the clot"3
