The first minutes after a sudden cardiac arrest are vitally essential.
Early Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and early defibrillation are the only way you can save the patient. To give an effective CPR is a big challenge, especially for an inexperienced first aider! Where to place your hand? How hard and how often to push?
The Cardio First Angel eliminates these insecurities, enabling anyone to give effective compressions (cardiac massage) and help save a life.
"In our analysis, correctness of manual chest compression in laymen was significantly improved with regard to compression depth when using the device." ¹
How To Use
1. Simply place the Cardio First Angel in the centre of the chest. The shape of the device helps you with the correct position.
2. Kneel next to the patient and perform CPR using the Cardio First Angel. Use your shoulders for strength.
3. The click sound indicates how hard to press and aids you with the frequency.
Cardio First Angel is instrumental in the Chain of Survival.
Why It Works
Easy to Use: The Cardio First Angel is easy and intuitive to use. The shape of the device helps you find the correct position on the patient’s chest and a click sound indicates the correct compression depth. If the first-aider is geared to the click-sound they will automatically reach the required frequency of approximately 100 compressions per minute.
Compact Design: Thanks to its small unique design the Cardio First Angel weighs just 130 grams, this allows it to fit almost anywhere, making it easily accessible.
No Battery Required: The Cardio First Angel works purely mechanically with no battery or power source required. The Cardio First Angel requires no maintenance and is available and ready-to-use at any time.
No Skin Contact: The Cardio First Angel creates a “buffer” between you and the patient, increasing the willingness of first aiders to resuscitate without direct skin contact.
