ResQCPR System


What is the ResQCPR System?

The ResQCPR® System is a CPR adjunct that consists of two synergistic devices—the ResQPOD® ITD 16 (impedance threshold device) and the ResQPUMP® ACD-CPR device. Together, they increase the likelihood of survival. A major clinical study of more than 1600 patients showed a 49% increase in one-year survival from cardiac arrest.

The ResQPOD ITD 16 returns more blood to the heart (preload) and lowers intracranial pressure by regulating airflow during CPR to increase the vacuum in a patient’s chest during chest wall recoil.1,2

The ResQPUMP ACD-CPR device further increases blood return by re-expanding the chest with a lift force of up to 10 kg. It is the only approved system for delivering true active compression-decompression CPR.

ResQPOD ITD

The ResQPOD® impedance threshold device (ITD) is a simple, non-invasive device that delivers intrathoracic pressure regulation (IPR) therapy during basic or advanced life support CPR to improve perfusion

The ResQPOD® impedance threshold device (ITD) is a simple, non-invasive device that delivers intrathoracic pressure regulation (IPR) therapy during basic or advanced life support CPR to improve perfusion. The ResQPOD ITD lowers intrathoracic pressure during the recoil phase of CPR by selectively restricting unnecessary airflow into the chest. This vacuum increases preload, lowers intracranial pressure (ICP), and improves blood flow to the brain and vital organs.

Improved Outcomes

Studies have shown that when combined with high-quality CPR, the ResQPOD ITD:

•Doubles blood flow to the heart1
•Increases blood flow to the brain by 50%2
•Increases survival from cardiac arrest by 25% or more3 • •

Coronavirus has all of us questioning if that sniffle or runny nose is something much more sinister. And with good reason.

The chart above should give you some clarity. It’s the symptoms experienced by 55,000 patients in China who tested positive for coronavirus.

The most common symptom? A fever.

The main difference between a cold and COVID-19 is the likelihood of fever: most people with COVID-19 develop a high temperature.

In contrast, while people with a cold can develop a fever, it happens only rarely, according to the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention.

New non contact infrared thermometer
Our new non contact infrared thermometer will help you identify at risk people.

Coronavirus symptoms have even more in common with influenza — that other, sometimes deadly virus often confused with the common cold.

So while that sniffle is probably just the usual upper respiratory tract infection, you can’t be sure. If you think you might have been exposed to COVID-19, call the Coronavirus Health Information Hotline at any time on 1800 020 080. And before visiting your GP or hospital, call ahead and call them about your symptoms.

Do you have a number of people, friends, students, associates that you need to check? – Our new non contact infrared thermometers are the answer.
