Rising Star: A Research Simulator Model for Maximal Output CPR
The “Research Simulator CPR model” is an important step in the effort to improve the COP during CPR. Its unique, interconnected-multi-compartment design, with each compartment containing physiological fluid volume depicts normal human circulatory compartments. The outlet of the central, cardiac compartment could be measured objectively and precisely (the COP). Thus, we can simulate the efficacy – the cardiac output – produced by various CPR techniques and their combinations, under different clinical states.
This innovation should open the gates of a multitude of animal and clinical studies that would ultimately conclude the discussion as to the best possible CPR method for maximal COP and hence better prognosis with resuscitation after cardiac arrest. Usage of a homegrown device designed for the safety and improved outcome of patients would inculcate consumer confidence in the services and capabilities of HMC.
