Saint Barnabas Medical Center of New Jersey, US, has installed the AutoPulse Non-Invasive Cardiac Support Pump to provide resuscitation capabilities for its emergency department.

The AutoPulse is an automated chest compression device that can be used to squeeze the entire chest in a hands-free manner to deliver high-quality chest compression to patients.

The device improves blood flow to the brain and heart in the case of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), and frees up time for clinicians, enabling them to concentrate on other life-saving interventions.

Christopher Freer, chairman of Saint Barnabas Medical Center Emergency Medicine, said the AutoPulse is extremely useful in code blue situations because it is easy to apply and fit to the patient.

”Most importantly, it can be used for substantial amounts of time to deliver steady, proper chest compressions without rescuer fatigue, something that cannot be achieved with manual CPR,” Freer said.
