Researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin are testing 2 new biomedical devices during CPR to determine if more people can be saved and the quality of their lives improved.
This is the second phase of research testing the ResQPOD®, and will be conducted in 5 cities in the United States.
Prior research has shown the devices can increase blood flow by 75%, significantly increase blood flow to the brain, improve survival and holds potential to reduce the risk of brain damage.
The new ResQPump® device is shown on the left, and the new ResQPOD® device is shown on an ET tube above.
