Simple to Use
The Lifeline ARM’s extremely simplified control panel requires just two steps to initiate mechanical CPR: (1) Adjust the compression piston’s height relative to the patient’s chest using the Up / Down buttons, (2) Select from two rescue protocols by pressing the corresponding softkey: Chest compressions only (no breaths), or chest compressions with rescue breaths.
Long Life Rechargeable Battery
- Long runtime battery pack life (requires less power to accomplish compressions) Fast battery pack recharge time
- Long useful life battery pack (3 years or about 300 charge/discharge cycles)
- External AC power adapter also recharges the battery pack, even during use
In an emergency situation, the Lifeline ARM when used as an adjunct to manual CPR, provides extended CPR with minimal interruptions when fatigue, insufficient personnel, or patient transport (e.g., ambulance, intra-hospital) may prohibit the delivery of effective/consistent compressions to the victim.
Lightweight and Strong Materials
The Lifeline ARM ACC device is comprised of a state-of-the-art compression module paired with a specially designed lightweight yet sturdy frame. An innovative motor design ensures efficient and smooth operation of the compression piston, and a smart software driven motor control algorithm provides accurate CPR rates and compression depth for variable patient chest resistances.
Easy to Maintain and Service
A USB port on the Compression Module enhances the Lifeline ARM’s serviceability in the field and makes it adaptable to future resuscitation requirements. Maintenance functions, such as retrieval of event data, and software upgrades, can be performed through a connection to a personal computer loaded with Defibtech ACC Support Software. A Service Indicator light on the Compression Module flashes to indicate when it is time for periodic servicing.
