The ResQCPR System is intended for use as a CPR adjunct to improve the likelihood of survival in adult patients with non-traumatic cardiac arrest. Risk information: Improper use of the ResQCPR System could cause ineffective chest compressions and decompressions, leading to suboptimal circulation during CPR and possible serious injury to the patient. The ResQCPR System should only be used by personnel who have been trained in its use. The ResQPUMP should not be used in patients who have had a recent sternotomy as this may potentially cause serious injury. Improper positioning of the ResQPUMP suction cup may result in possible injury to the rib cage and/or internal organs, and may also result in suboptimal circulation during ACD-CPR. 49-0879-000, 01 The ResQCPR TM System is a CPR adjunct comprised of two synergistic devices – the ResQPOD ® ITD 16 and the ResQPUMP ® ACD- CPR Device.
