In order to be able to save the lives of sudden cardiac arrest patients, effective and uninterrupted chest compressions are required. Performing manual chest compressions of high quality is difficult and depends a lot upon the person performing the CPR. The quality of CPR varies time to time and with each compression. The important determinant of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and survival with good a neurological outcome is a proper depth and rate of chest compressions during CPR. This creates adequate blood flow and oxygen delivery to the heart and brain.
Nihon Kohden’s new CPR assist supports performing and maintaining high quality CPR. It is also a training tool for ALS and BLS teams with a mannequin to improve and maintain CPR skills.
Key points to ensure high-quality CPR
1. Perform chest compressions to a depth of at least 5 cm
(2 inches) but not greater than 6 cm (2.4 inches)
2. Perform chest compressions at a rate of 100 to 120/min
3. Minimize interruptions in compressions
Look and hear the quality of CPR
CPR assist indicates the speed and depth of chest compression by the LED light and sound.
It helps you perform higher quality CPR and supports easier CPR training.Evaluate the quality of CPR
CPR assist can communicate with a PC via Bluetooth.
Waveform and measurement values stored in the device during CPR can be reviewed and evaluated on the PC later in a report format with optional QP-551VK defibrillator report viewer software.
These evaluations help you to improve future CPR.Nihon Kohden Manage the quality of CPR
CPR assist can also communicate with Nihon Kohden’s defibrillator via Bluetooth.
