udden Cardiac Arrest is the leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for approximately 325,000 deaths every year. Those who suffer from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) are at high risk of death, especially if medical attention is not immediately administered. Fortunately, there is the AutoPulse Non-Invasive Cardiac Support Pump, made by ZOLL Medical Corporation.
This device, the only one of its kind, provides those suffering from SCA with a much more stable and consistent chest compressions — allowing more blood flow to both the heart and the brain. This is essential for the survival of SCA victims, as it allows rescuers to perform other life-saving activities while the device provides constant, high-quality compressions to improve blood flow. The improved blood flow allows hospital workers better access resulting in a shown triple survival rate until hospital discharge. There is no question that the device helps improve the chance of survival following a SCA. What makes the device even more impressive is its ability to adjust automatically to each patient’s unique chest, as well as its intuitive easy-to-use nature.
