Shockable or nonshockable rhythm, 100% of patients will require CPR, and the better the CPR, the better the outcome. Survival depends on compressions that are fast—but not too fast—and deep—but not too deep—with full release, minimal interruptions, and appropriate ventilation. That’s a lot to keep track of. It’s the reason R Series® Monitor/Defibrillators have easy-to-use technologies that help you consistently deliver high-quality CPR. With the R Series ALS and the R Series Plus, you have the flexibility to meet the needs of all providers, whether BLS or ALS trained, and all patients, from pediatrics to adults.
CPR Metrics on Display
Using Real CPR Help® technology, the R Series provides audio and visual feedback that guides rescuers to consistently deliver high-quality CPR. If compressions aren’t deep enough, you will hear, “Push harder.” And detailed visual feedback, including the rate and depth of each compression, is displayed on the CPR Dashboard™. If either one falls out of the Guidelines-recommended range, it will be indicated by a color change. Additionally, the diamond-shaped Perfusion Performance Indicator, or PPI, provides a quick indication of how well the combined rate and depth of compressions match current CPR Guidelines. The dashboard also provides a compression release indicator. When the bar is full, you know that you’ve come completely off the chest to allow for full recoil.
