Physio-Control Develops New Digital CPR Coach

CPR, or cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, is a simple procedure that could mean the difference between life or death for someone. However, if not done properly the procedure can be useless or even dangerous. In order to avoid this, Physio-Control has developed the TrueCPR coach that provides precise feedback on how effective the CPR is being performed.

The device uses a pair of pads, one that sits under the patient and a second that sits on their chest, that monitor the distance between the two using a magnetic field. This allows the TrueCPR to provide constant and visual feedback on whether the compressions need to be deeper or shallower, and how often they need to be performed.

An amazing feature of the device is that it is equally effective on a soft surface like a bed, where it can feel like compressions are being performed deeper than they really are, or even in a moving vehicle like an ambulance. The best part is that the TrueCPR has already been cleared by the FDA and European agencies and is available for sale right now. To see a demo of the TrueCPR device follow the link below.
