Lifeline ARM ACC
Meet the Lifeline ARM Automated Chest Compression (ACC, a device for performing mechanical chest compressions when effective manual CPR is not possible.
In an emergency situation, the Lifeline ARM when used as an adjunct to manual CPR, provides extended CPR with minimal interruptions when fatigue, insufficient personnel, or patient transport (e.g., ambulance, intra-hospital) may prohibit the delivery of effective/consistent compressions to the victim.
The Lifeline ARM has an extremely simplified Control Panel where just two steps are needed to initiate mechanical CPR:
- Adjust the Compression Piston height relative to the patient’s chest for beginning compressions by using the Up / Down softkey buttons located on the Control Panel of the Compression Module
- Depending on the protocol that is in line with your designated emergency response procedures, choose between “Run Continuous,” which performs chest compressions only (no breathing) for continuous chest compressions, or “Run with Breaths,” which follows the compressions with breaths protocol by using programmed pauses for rescue breaths.
