Any life saving technique demands a high level of excellence in its delivery during an emergency intervention. Such is the case with cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) where a patient’s chest compression fraction (CCF)can only be maximized if rescuers provide effective and uninterrupted CPR. In addition, effective manual CPR may be jeopardized, because CPR guidelines become difficult to maintain, as fatigue can occur in as little as 1-2 minutes.
Defibtech is proud to introduce the Lifeline ARM Automated Chest Compression (ACC) device, a mechanical solution when effective manual CPR isn’t possible, for example due to a shortage of personnel or during patient transport. When used as an adjunct to manual CPR, it ensures effective CPR for adults with compression depth (2 inches/5cm) and rate (at least 100 per minute), as recommended in current AHA/ERC guidelines.
The Lifeline ARM ACC device is comprised of a state-of-the-art compression module paired with a specially designed lightweight yet sturdy frame. An innovative motor design ensures efficient and smooth operation of the compression piston, and a smart software driven motor control algorithm provides accurate CPR rates and compression depth for variable patient chest resistances.
The rigidity of the frame and backboard allow operation without undue deflection or distortion that could compromise consistent compression depth. The Lifeline ARM ACC device, with its intuitive user interface and automated operation, enhances the precision, dexterity, and control needed when performing CPR.
Advanced battery technology allows for unmatched operational times and long service life across the a wide temperature range. Flexible power options include efficient battery swapping features and external AC power input. Field upgradable software enhances its service ability and makes it adaptable to future resuscitation protocol requirements.
The innovative and elegant design of the Lifeline ARM ACC device affords portability, speedy deployment, compressions with or without rescue breaths, and event capture. Defibtech continues to provide superior value, design, and technical innovation in products with powerful features, functions, and ease of use. The results are truly useful products for helping save lives.
