Telford, UK, (29th February, 2012) – Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd, a leading supplier of first aid equipment, hospital and medical supplies, are now offering the CardioPump: a device which provides a method of Active Compression Decompression (ACD) CPR.
The CardioPump is a small and portable manual device which is ideal either as a standalone method of Active Compression Decompression (ACD) CPR, or as a back up to the mechanical variations currently on the market.
The CardioPump allows the standard method of external chest compressions to be optimised with active re-expansion of the chest between each compression. This enhances the intrathoracic vacuum, resulting in greater preload and thus, greater cardiac output on the subsequent compression.
“Performing ACD CPR is proven to increase arterial blood pressure and coronary perfusion pressure, whilst lowering intrathoracic pressure during the decompression phase of CPR. Overall, this method can increase the short-term and long-term survival rates in patients considerably,” commented a spokesperson for Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd. “When ACD CPR is performed along with the ResQPOD Impedance Threshold Device (ITD) hemodynamics are further improved; thus offering an innovative and proven-effective CPR aid.”
