A new cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) method can improve long-term survival rates with good brain function by 50%, according to a five-year clinical trial led by researchers at University of Minnesota Medical School, US.

The new method combines two devices — ResQPump and ResQPOD — which are manufactured by Advanced Circulatory Systems.

The ResQPump features a suction cup that attaches to the patient’s chest, and a handle to manually lift the chest after each compression, to stimulate blood flow.

The ResQPOD connects to the patient airway with a facemask and prevents air from rushing into the lungs when ResQPump is used to raise the chest.

The study authors are planning to recommend the method to the American Heart Association as the new standard.
