The ElevatedCPRTM Method

The ElevatedCPRTM Method

ElevatedCPR therapy is a technologically-advanced method of performing device-assisted head up CPR that incorporates lifting the head, heart, and thorax in a multi-angled incline, in a timed sequence, in conjunction with best practice resuscitation protocols.

This positioning allows the body to drain venous blood from the brain while CPR is being performed; and pre-clinical evidence shows a number of benefits associated with this positioning relative to intracranial pressure (ICP), cerebral perfusion pressure (CerPP) and coronary perfusion pressure (CorPP).1,2,3,4,5,6

Bundle of Care

ElevatedCPR therapy is intended to be used with a bundle of care including the EleGARDTM Patient Positioning System, active compression-decompression and/or mechanical CPR devices, and an impedance threshold device (ITD) to help regulate the intrathoracic pressure while CPR is being performed.

Initial pre-clinical studies exploring ElevatedCPR therapy as part of this bundle of care have shown a strong potential to improve resuscitation and survival from sudden cardiac arrest.

Pre-clinical studies have shown doubled blood flow to and through the brain and other vital organs compared to today’s best-of-class CPR techniques and devices. In addition, when compared to circulation from hands-only CPR with the patient supine or head flat, the increase in cerebral circulation is profound, nearly 4-fold after 15 minutes of CPR. ElevatedCPR therapy also produces an immediate and significant reduction in intracranial pressure.5,6

Evidence-Based Benefits of ElevatedCPR Therapy

ElevatedCPR therapy is the first major CPR breakthrough in decades and may offer a significant opportunity to improve the chances for neurologically-intact survival of cardiac arrest when implemented with the proper bundle of devices.

Initial pre-clinical studies exploring ElevatedCPR therapy have shown doubled blood flow to and through the brain and other vital organs compared to today’s best-of-class CPR techniques and devices.5

ElevatedCPR therapy produces an immediate and significant reduction in intracranial pressure,3,4 mitigating the “brain concussion with every compression” seen in CPR. “Head flat” (conventional) CPR increases ICP– effectively causing a concussion with every compression.

When compared to circulation from hands-only CPR with the patient supine or head flat, the increase in cerebral circulation is profound, nearly 4-fold after 15 minutes of CPR.6

Human cadaver studies with Active Compression Decompression CPR with an ITD and with the Lucas Automated CPR device with an ITD show physiologic results consistent with the animal studies.3,4

The Science Behind ElevatedCPR Therapy

Pre-clinical scientific data has demonstrated that precise multi-angled patient positioning along with a timed elevation sequence dramatically enhances the potential outcomes of device-assisted head up CPR, or ElevatedCPR therapy.5, 6 The positioning of the patient, the speed at which the patient is elevated into the ElevatedCPR position after initial supine CPR priming, and the height to which the head is elevated over the heart and the heart over the lower part of the body are all critical components to produce the optimal physiological response to ElevatedCPR.6
