Consistent Compressions. No Interruptions.
For victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), only one thing is certain – chest compressions will be required. Yet, manual compressions – even when they are done well – only provide 10 – 20% of normal blood flow to the heart and 30 – 40 % to the brain.1
Now, there’s an alternative. The only device of its kind, the ZOLL® AutoPulse® is a revolutionary non-invasive cardiac support pump that moves more blood,2,3,4 more consistently than is possible with human hands. Easy to use and battery operated, its load-distributing LifeBand® squeezes the entire chest. As a result, victims receive consistent, high-quality compressions that deliver improved blood flow.
AutoPulse also minimizes no-flow time. It allows rescuers to provide compressions while performing other life-saving activities, or while transporting a victim down the stairs or in the back of a moving ambulance.
The AutoPulse delivers improved blood flow without interruptions of fatigue and provides hospital caregivers better access to the patient resulting in the possibility of improved survival for cardiac arrest victims. In fact, it has been shown to double survival to hospital discharge5.
The AutoPulse offers:
- Ensures improved blood flow by squeezing the entire chest, not just pushing on a single spot like manual CPR and other mechanical devices
- Is fast, easy and intuitive to start-up and use – it doesn’t require manual adjustments because it automatically calculates the size, shape and resistance of each patient’s chest
- Functions as an “additional person”
- Ensures clinical safety
