Knowledge. Implementation. Improvement.  

Stryker takes a comprehensive approach to CPR with technology designed for both individual rescuers and resuscitation teams to deliver more effective, high-quality CPR that follows the American Heart Association (AHA) and European Resuscitation Council (ERC) Guidelines.

A comprehensive approach: PowerCPR

Everything during CPR is focused on optimizing perfusion, which sustains the heart, brain and other vital organs with critical blood flow. At Stryker, as part of our PowerCPR approach, we offer the necessary technology to address the key components that drive perfusion.

Technique

The goal is sustained, continuous high-quality compressions.

Metronome and ventilation guidance with LIFEPAK devices
  • Assisted CPR rate
  • Clearly audible voice prompts in all settings
  • Data feedback loop to drive improvement
Mechanical CPR with LUCAS chest compression system
  • Guidelines-consistent CPR metrics
  • Ventilation prompts and pauses

Patient-centered feedback

Patient-centered feedback

As high-quality compressions are being delivered, the patient is monitored and therapy is adjusted as needed.

EtCO2 and SpO2 monitoring using LIFEPAK monitor/defibrillators 
  • Capnography (EtCO2) can indicate CPR quality and detect ROSC
  • Pulse oximetry (SpO2) may provide alternative to palpate pulses

Data-driven improvement

Data-driven improvement

Improvement and optimized performance can only occur with measurement and subsequent understanding of CPR performance.1

CODE-STAT data review software can provide you with:
  • Comprehensive collection of data surrounding entire event (including ECG rhythm, impendence signal, EtCO2 waveform and values, and CPR analytics) using standard pads
  • CPR report cards
  • Delivery of actionable feedback to the teams
