If you are looking for information on Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation(CPR) Machines in India, then you are at the right place. Before going into the details, let us understand the product and its application first, which will help you to decide while buying the CPR Machine.
WHAT IS CPR?
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, commonly known as CPR, is a lifesaving technique that’s useful in many emergencies such as cardiac arrest or near drowning, in which someone’s breathing or heartbeat has stopped.
If you’re afraid to do CPR or unsure how to perform CPR correctly, know that it’s always better to try than to do nothing at all. The difference between doing something and doing nothing could be someone’s life.
CPR can keep oxygen-rich blood flowing to the brain and other organs until emergency medical treatment can restore a typical heart rhythm. This is important, as without oxygen, someone can sustain permanent brain damage or die in under 8 minutes.
Only 2% of adults in India know how to perform CPR. For every minute that passes without CPR and defibrillation, a patient’s chance of survival decreases by 7-10%. Survival rate of cardiac arrest is less than 12% but when CPR is being administered, the survival rate goes up to 24-40%. Learning how to give hands-only CPR in times of a cardiac emergency is the most fundamental skill to begin the chain of survival.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO BEFORE PERFORMING CPR?
- Is the environment safe for the person?
- Is the person conscious or unconscious?
- If the person appears unconscious, tap or shake his or her shoulder and ask loudly, “Are you OK?”
- If the person doesn’t respond and you’re with another person who can help, have one person call 112 or the local emergency number and get the AED (Automatic External Defibrillator), if one is available. Have the other person begin CPR.
- If you are alone and have immediate access to a telephone, call 112 or your local emergency number before beginning CPR. Get the AED if one is available.
- As soon as an AED is available, deliver one shock if instructed by the device, then begin CPR.
WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO PERFORM CPR?
- Call 112 or ask someone else to.
- Lay the person on their back and open their airway.
- Check for breathing and pulse. If none present, start CPR.
- Perform 30 chest compression cycles at the rate of 100 per minute.
- Perform two rescue breaths.
- Repeat until an ambulance or AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) arrives.
REMEMBER THIS WHILE PERFORMING CPR:
A-B-C OF CPR
How to Open Airway?
Place the person carefully on their back and kneel beside their chest. Tilt their head back slightly by lifting their chin. Open their mouth and check for any obstruction, such as food or vomit. Remove any obstruction if it is loose. If it is not loose, trying to grasp it may push it farther into the airway.
How to check for Breathing?
Place your ear next to the person’s mouth and listen for no more than 10 seconds. If you do not hear breathing, or you only hear occasional gasps, begin CPR. If someone is unconscious but still breathing, do not perform CPR.
How to check for Pulse?
Place your index and middle finger to the side of the neck, just under the jaw and beside the windpipe. Do not use your thumb. If you do not feel any pulse, or you feel weak, irregular pulses, begin CPR. Pulse can be checked by placing your index and middle finger on the inside of the wrist, at the base of the thumb.
How to perform Compressions?
Adult- Place one of your hands on top of the other and clasp them together. With the heel of the hands and straight elbows, push hard and fast in the centre of the chest, slightly below the nipples. Push at least 2 inches deep. Compress their chest at a rate of least 100 times per minute. Let the chest rise fully between compressions.
Child- Place the heel of one hand on the centre of the chest at the nipple line. You can also push with one hand on top of the other. Push at least 2 inches deep. Make sure not to press on ribs, as they are fragile and prone to fracture. Do 30 chest compressions, at the rate of 100 per minute. Let the chest rise completely between pushes.
Infant- Place index and middle fingers on the breastbone. Make sure not to press on the end of the breastbone. Press down about 1.5 inches deep. Do 30 compressions, at the rate of 100 per minute. Let the chest rise completely between pushes.
WHEN TO USE CPR?
Use CPR when an adult is not breathing at all. For a child or infant, use CPR when they are not breathing normally. Always use CPR if the adult or child is not responding when you talk to them or tap them.
A person might need CPR if they stop breathing in any of the following circumstances:
- Cardiac arrest or heart attack
- Road traffic accident
- Drug or alcohol overdose
- Smoke inhalation electrocution
- Suspected sudden infant death syndrome
WHAT IS A CPR MACHINE?
The shift from manual CPR to compressions may be done with minimal interruption thanks to the lightweight and ease of usage of CPR Machines.
They perform effective, customized, hands-free CPR and never get tired. They allow medical professionals to concentrate on other life-saving procedures and provide improved access to the patient. They also allow rescuers to be more safely positioned, and less susceptible to personal injury.
An AED can be used in conjunction with the CPR Machine. The machine can continue chest compressions during the setup of AED.

Types of CPR Machines
1. Piston Driven Sternal CPR Machine
This type of CPR machine administers compressions by driving a piston to compress the heart against the backbone in the same manner as manual CPR. It is manually set by the rescuer to deliver a fixed depth of compression.
Amoul E6 is an Automatic Portable CPR Machine which is battery-driven, easy to operate and has an easy-to-use interface. It has 3 compression modes which are 15:2, 30:2 and continuous compressions. It provides both visual and audio prompts, minimizing the interrupts and increasing chances of return of spontaneous circulation. This device can work simultaneously with 6000S Ventilator vie Bluetooth.

2. Load-Distributing Band CPR Machine
The load-distributing band (LBD) is a circumferential chest compression device composed of a pneumatically or electrically actuated constricting band and backboard. The LBD may be considered for use by properly trained personnel in specific settings for the treatment of cardiac arrest.
Amoul E3 is a pneumatically driven and electronically controlled Resuscitator which is portable and lightweight. It provides a unique combination of compression and ventilation. It consists of 5 operation modes which are 15:2, 30:2, continuous compression, continuous ventilation and manual breath. The device provides multidirectional chest compressions and real-time compression depth display. It is also equipped with a carrying bag for storing device, oxygen cylinder, breathing circuit and accessories.
