Regardless of whether it is a lay person or a professional rescuer, the ERC guidelines place a greater emphasis on the importance of CPR and advocate the prompt initiation of effective bystander CPR to significantly reduce mortality due to out-of-hospital CA. HeartSine can now provide a device to support these guidelines the introduction of the HeartSine samaritan PAD with CPR Advisor model 500P.
CPR stands for Cardio (heart) Pulmonary (lung) Resuscitation which is a combination of pushing the heart to circulate blood to all the vital organs and breathing into the victim to give them oxygen. There has been a lot of research into the best way to resuscitate a patient and the results of that have been built into the HeartSine® PAD500P guidance. The HeartSine® PAD500P uses an Impedance Cardiogram (ICG) to assess how good the CPR is – are the compressions fast enough? Hard enough? The Impedance Cardiogram (ICG) measures Impedance changes in blood volume in the chest cavity which determines effective CPR. Since the blood-fl ow is related to how fast the compressions are applied as well as how hard, the PAD500P can guide you on both. ‘Push faster’ means the compressions are too slow. Likewise, ‘push harder’ means more pressure is needed before concerning yourself with the speed.
The simple objective is to ensure that the green indicators are on during CPR with the voice prompting ‘good compressions’. One amber light means that either CPR is not being applied at all, or it is too gentle and too slow. All amber lights showing mean you are not applying enough pressure. All lights on mean you are pushing hard enough. The aural clicks will help you keep time.
