Phillip Woods, BA, NREMT-P, FP-C, our in-house flight medic and account manager gives an overview of the Lifeline Arm: the latest mechanical CPR device from Defibtech.
It features a removable compression module allowing for easier patient access as well as improved and easier serviceability. The unique and intuitive two-step menu means that once you power the device on, you simply adjust the piston height to the patient, and then press “start” with either continuous CPR or at a 30:2 ratio, depending on your state and local protocols. It also has a USB port on the bottom making all events downloadable for QA/QI review.
The lithium ion battery on the side is able to power the device continuously for up to an hour without needing to be charged or plugged in. The one-piece clamshell design of the frame reduces flex or distortion, both of which can lead to worse CPR outcomes. The over-sized handles on the side also allow for easier access to and application to the patient.
There you have it folks: the Defibtech Arm mechanical CPR device. A state-of-the-art piece of equipment able to perform high quality mechanical CPR in any environment which CPR is needed to be performed. If you have any questions or for purchasing options, please give us a call at 1-800-695-1209 or visit our website, AED.US. Thanks for watching!
