Real-Time CPR Monitoring, Feedback Available

Q-CPR, available on the HeartStart MRx monitor/defibrillator, provides real-time cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) monitoring and feedback for advanced life support (ALS)-trained responders. It also offers medical professionals corrective feedback on the rate and depth of chest compressions, frequency and quality of ventilations, allowing for modification in their technique when administering CPR.
Quality CPR and early defibrillation are inextricably linked — the combination is needed to increase the survival rate for victims of sudden cardiac arrest. When breath rates or chest compression targets are not being met, Q-CPR provides visual and audio cues that help rescuers adjust their technique. The system was developed to enable caregivers to not just “feel” CPR, but to see and hear how they are doing, helping to improve the quality of CPR for their patients in real time.
