Devices for providing automatic CPR
Although mechanical chest compression devices are sometimes used in place of manual compressions, they have not been shown to be as effective as standard CPR.
Various devices have also been created to improve the quality of CPR by providing visual and audible cues. This can help prevent the victim’s breathing from becoming shallow.
These items can be placed on top of the victim’s chest, and they can display or provide feedback on the force, depth, and rate of compressions. According to some studies, these devices can improve the effectiveness of CPR.
Aside from being used during CPR, these can also be used in training programs to improve the skills of individuals who are new to performing chest compressions.
