CPR quality

CPR quality - A measurable difference

Better quality CPR in your hands and right before your eyes


Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) has a direct effect on sudden cardiac arrest patient outcomes. Yet the effectiveness of CPR is often compromised by the lack of procedural standards. Variations in ventilation and chest compressions can mean the difference between life and death.¹ ²


The American Heart Association (AHA) has developed specific resuscitation guidelines to address the need for consistent high quality CPR. Philips is meeting this challenge with solutions that provide measurable data to improve CPR performance.


Our monitors and defibrillators, equipped with the Q-CPR™ measurement tool, deliver real-time feedback during actual cardiac arrests, providing you with vital information to improve technique and help save more lives.

 

2013 AHA Consensus Statement

5 Parameters for more effective CPR

  1. Compression depth: At least 2"
  2. Ventilation rate: <10/minute
  3. Compression rate: At least 100/minute
  4. Full chest recoil
  5. Minimal interruptions/hands off time: <10 seconds per pause

The opportunity

Start the clock earlier  

First responders can deliver critical STEMI patient information to wherever it’s needed – the ED, cardiographers, monitors, or the cath lab - helping to quickly corroborate an initial diagnosis and alert appropriate personnel.
 
The opportunity

Turn data into action

Quality data is required to efficiently mobilize resources and prepare proper treatment. STEMI clinical decision support tools aid in rapid triage to help you drive a successful protocol.


The opportunity

Deliver clinical exellence

Predictive software solutions, intuitive displays, and smart alarms that can help clinicians implement therapy earlier. Interventional tools enhance visualization for diagnostic clinical confidence in PCI procedures.

Better feedback for better CPR

Seeing better resuscitation

"I am seeing better resuscitation [with Q-CPR], more effective use of shock. These types of devices help us do a better job."

Designed to improve CPR during a code

Philips CPR solutions can help your team measure the resuscitation parameters critical to CPR success.


Featuring real-time visual and corrective audio feedback, our Q-CPR measurement tool will alert you any time performance deviates significantly from AHA guidelines.
