Physio-Control launches CPR coaching device
By Fire Fighting in Canada
May 14, 2013 – Physio-Control has launched its TrueCPR coaching device. The device measures manual chest compressions during CPR and provides real-time feedback to improve the quality of CPR performance. The device uses a triaxial field induction (TFI) technology, which measures the depth of the chest compressions in CPR. It uses a low-energy 3-D magnetic field for its measurements, meaning the device is accurate on soft surfaces, like a hospital gurney or mattress, and in a moving ambulance. TrueCPR also provides users with a summary of statistics after use, including average compression rate and correct depth percentage, among others. For more information, visit www.physio-control.com.
