Zoll's AutoPulse is a non-invasive cardiac support pump that generates unique and consistent chest compressions, leading to the promise of normal blood flow to the heart and brain. These levels of perfusion in SCA may result in return of spontaneous circulation and neurologically intact survival. The AutoPulse system is comprised of a backboard and a simple, load-distributing LifeBand that easily fastens across the victim's chest. It is elegant in its simplicity and unparalleled in its life-saving ability. The AutoPulse is fast, easy and intuitive to start-up and use, and can function as an "additional person" and ensure clinician safety.
