Approved a $15,000 CPR compression unit for emergency medical services
The American Heart Association's Chain of Survival for cardiac arrest
emphasizes the early implementation of effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation
(CPR). Because of the high physical demand, American Heart Association
guidelines suggest that for chest compressions to be effective, rescuers
performing chest compressions should be rotated every two minutes during
CPR. The CPR compression device ensures that uninterrupted, effective
compressions will continue throughout the rescue effort.
