2 Visit us at Booth #29 to hear about new survival data! More Heartbeat T H A N A PMS Enhanced CPR. Better neurologic outcomes. Saving a life can mean so much more than simply restoring a pulse. The ResQPOD impedance threshold device (ITD) gives rescuers the potential to return patients to a full life after sudden cardiac arrest. The ResQPOD enhances circulation during basic or advanced life support CPR. This simple, non-invasive device regulates pressures in the chest and improves blood flow to the heart and brain. The result? In studies, survival with favorable neurologic outcomes increased by 25% or more. With the ResQPOD, you can expect more than a heartbeat. Steve Dunn, Ph.D., Professor Thanks to the ResQPOD and a dedicated EMS team, Steve survived sudden cardiac arrest in 2008 and was able to see hi oldest son graduate from college AdvancedCirculatory.com The generally cleared indication for the ResQPOD available for sale in the United States (US) is for a temporary increase in blood circulation during emergency care, hospital, clinic and home use. Research is ongoing in the US to evaluate the long-term benefit of the ResQPOD for indications related to patients suffering from cardiac arrest. The studies referenced here are not intended to imply specific outcome-based claims not yet cleared by the US FDA.
