In the Field

Challenges

Conditions in the field are unpredictable, often difficult, and challenging for healthcare professionals. Thus, performing uninterrupted manual CPR to current AHA guidelines can be physically impossible. The ROSC-U™ Miniature Chest Compressor is designed to perform reliable chest compressions even in the most complex environments. This unique system acts as an additional set of hands, providing quality chest compressions as long as needed.

The ROSC-U™ Miniature Chest Compressor also frees up healthcare professionals to focus on other critical functions and coordination and communication of care.

 

 

First responder Safety and Efficiency

Emergency medical technicians cannot perform chest compressions manually in an ambulance; it is unsafe and virtually impossible. By using the ROSC-U™ Miniature Chest Compressor for chest compressions in a mobile environment, first responders can protect themselves by wearing safety belts.

 

Common Problems

  • Manual compressions are physically demanding 
  • First responders frequently complain of back pain as a result of performing chest compressions
  • Some victims have cardiac arrest a second time during transport to hospital
