Problem: SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST

Leading cause of death in the United States and currently affects around 424,00* people.

During a sudden cardiac arrest, the heart loses its normal functionality due to electrical disturbances that can stall the heart and stop the blood flow to your body. It is accompanied by loss of consciousness, stopped breathing e.t.c.

Stats: Cardiac Arrest

Number of Cases Outside of the Hospital: 90%
Survival rate - Actual: 10%
Survival rate with bystander intervention :30%

Existing TREATMENT

Administer Chest Compressions

The immediate treatment in a situation like sudden cardiac arrest is to administer chest compressions to keep the blood flowing to the vital organs. Currently it is done manually by the emergency personnel or the bystander.

  • The process is called Cardio pulmonary resuscitation (Famously known as CPR– Compression + Mouth to Mouth respiration).
  • Recently there is an adaptation of  Cardiocerebral resuscitation (CCR – Compression only).

DEFIBRILLATION
Use of Automated External Defibrillators to deliver high currents to bring the heart back to rhythm.


Note: AED’s can only be used in a few case types. Not all rhythms can be treated by defibrillation. In such cases Chest compressions is the only way to revive a person.

Medications
Use of certain types of drugs to kickstart the heart.
Adaptation of CCR- Cardiocerebral Resuscitation

CCR – The new age CPR
Cardiocerebral resuscitation (CCR) is being adapted as an alternative approach to Cardiopulmonary resuscitation with out-of-hospital cardiac arrest patients who have no access to AED’s.
It has been shown to improve rates of neurologically intact survival by 250%–300%.

Recommended Guidelines for chest compressions

RATE OF COMPRESSION
100 COMPRESSIONS PER MINUTE
DEPTH
2 INCHES DEEP

FACTORS AFFECTING CURRENT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES

Manual Chest Compression:
  • Physical Fatigue
  • Protocols – Leading to more human labor
  • Unregulated method of administering
Defibrillators:
  • Battery failures in devices.
Bystanders:
  • Lack of knowledge on resuscitation process.
  • Unwillingness to help – citing legal consequences and or fear of hurting.

FEATURES

MODULAR DESIGN
Add or swap blocks when not in use.
UNIVERSAL SIZING
Fits a wide variety of body masses
LOW SETUP TIME
Dual Mode functionality
Continuous monitoring

How is ours different from others?

SMART DESIGN

The only product in the market that would be able to monitor physiological parameters along with performing life saving chest compressions.

It will learn and adapt based on iterative feedback from sensors to perform the most efficient treatment.

SAFETY FEATURES

Forget visual cues from permanent marker signs for tracking position shifts.

With multiple sensors all along the product, it would continuously detect for changes in treatment position, and alerts the bystander with alarms in case the shift is drastic.

While you concentrate on other important tasks of the treatment procedure

RELIABILITY

What do you do when a battery fails or an inadvertent electrical failure occurs.

Switch to Manual mode and continue compressions, saving precious time.
