Founded in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2015 by an experienced team that previously developed multiple novel resuscitation technologies currently in widespread clinical practice, AdvancedCPR SolutionsTM is an early stage medical device firm focused on the development and commercialization of delivery mechanisms, methods and devices that enable the ElevatedCPRTM method to potentially improve survival of cardiac arrest. The ElevatedCPR method is a broad, patent-protected and technologically-advanced technique for performing device-assisted head up CPR that incorporates raising the head, heart, and thorax in a multi-level elevation, in a timed sequence, in conjunction with the best practice standards of resuscitation protocols. Preclinical studies have demonstrated a number of benefits associated with the ElevatedCPR method relative to intracranial pressure (ICP)1 2 3, cerebral perfusion pressure (CerPP)1 2 3 4 5 6 7 and coronary perfusion pressure (CorPP) )2 3 4 5 6 7. The company’s initial device, the EleGARDTM Patient Positioning System, precisely, rapidly, and consistently positions patients for the ElevatedCPR method in the pre-hospital and hospital settings.
