With an innovative and elegant design, the Lifeline ARM is an automated solution for providing victims of sudden cardiac arrest high-quality and continuous CPR that is associated with better survival outcomes.1 Easy to deploy and use, the device delivers compressions, with complete chest recoil, at the depth and rate recommended by the AHA/ERC cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) guidelines. Using a proprietary algorithm that compensates for variability in patient chest resistances, the Lifeline ARM delivers precise compressions, an important factor for effective CPR.2

The Lifeline ARM is intended for use by qualified medical personnel, certified to administer CPR, as an adjunct to manual CPR when effective manual CPR is not possible (e.g., during patient transport, or extended CPR when fatigue may prohibit the delivery of effective/consistent compressions to the victim, or when insufficient personnel are available to provide effective CPR).
