Laerdal Medical and Philips committed to improving outcomes for sudden cardiac arrest patients

Laerdal FR3 Action Shot croppedCreator of Resusci Anne, Laerdal will be showing its recent innovations in Quality CPR training and defibrillation at next week’s Emergency Services Show 2014 at the NEC in Birmingham. Laerdal will be exhibiting alongside Philips, who through the two companies’ long standing partnership is committed to improving outcomes for the sudden cardiac arrest patient by strengthening the Chain of Survival through innovative solutions that support the emergency responder.

Located at Stand M34, visitors are invited to try out their CPR skills on the next generation Resusci Anne and Resusci Baby with QCPR manikins to see how the facilitation of real-time feedback on the core parameters of CPR (compression depth, release, rate, ventilation rate and volume) allows responders to measure and assess their performance for improvement and retention of this important skill. From the simple SkillGuide to the SimPad Skill Reporter, the Instructor now has tools to transform BLS (basic life support) training at both an individual and organisation level with data capture for quality debriefing and management systems to support continuous improvement.

Linking training to therapy is the core principle behind the integration of Laerdal’s CPRmeter into Philips’ internationally market leading defibrillators, FR3 and MRx, through which professional responders have the latest CPR feedback and Quick Shock technologies at their disposal to ensure resuscitation therapy is optimal and in accordance with quality guidelines.

Laerdal will also be unveiling its new patient simulator, SimMan 3G Trauma, which is designed to prepare the emergency responder for the realities of trauma care. The SimMan 3G Trauma is well suited for training the rapid assessment of trauma emergencies. It will also simulate necessary interventions such as haemorrhage control and airway management.
