LIFE-STAT Hands-Free CPR System

Life-stat-373

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

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

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

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

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

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.Ü
