It is important for return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and indeed, survival with a good neurological outcome, that a proper depth and rate of chest compressions are made during CPR as this ensures adequate blood flow and oxygen to the heart and brain.
Key Features of CPR Assist
- Chest compressions should be to a depth of at least 5cm (2”) but not greater than 6cm 2.4”) and at a rate of 100 to 120/minute. Nihon Kohden’s CPR Assist helps the resuscitator to perform and maintain high quality CPR, as well as being a great training tool for ALS and BLS teams with a mannequin to help improve and maintain CPR skills.
- CPR Assist helps with producing higher quality CPR by indicating the speed and depth of chest compression by LED light and sound
- CPR Assist can communicate with a PC via Bluetooth, and waveform and measurement values stored in the device during CPR can be reviewed and evaluated on the PC later.
- CPR Assist can also communicate with Nihon Kohden’s defibrillator via Bluetooth. The real time CPR waveform and measurement values can be viewed with other parameters such as ECG, SpO2, CO2 and NIPB on the defibrillator’s screen (Cardiolife TEC-5600)
