Now that weÌre well versed in the 2005 CPR guidelines, weÌre all changing compressors every two minutes to

eliminate rescuer fatigue and improve cardiac arrest survival rates. Another option is to replace the human

provider with a mechanical device. The Hands-Free CPR System from LIFE-STAT provides AHA-compliant

compressions and ventilations at a 30:2 ratio with a BLS airway in place, as well as continuous compressions

with asynchronous ventilations (nine per minute) for a patient with an advanced airway in place. It can be

mounted on a LIFE-STAT Backboard or mounted directly to a spineboard with a Michigan Instruments spineboard clip. Better yet, itÌs in action within five seconds, with virtually no interruption to the manual compression cycle.
