What is a Chest Compression Machine?
Unlike AEDs and manual defibs which are used to restart someone’s heart, CPR devices help provide proper chest compressions to ensure blood flow to essential organs and reduce the risk of brain damage. In addition to improved consistency over manual compressions, they also allow first responders to continue to deliver CPR while tending to other patient needs such as injuries, rescue breaths, or defibrillation. And since they can strap right into a backboard, rescuers can easily transport patients through challenging environments, like stairs or elevators, without pausing CPR.
