Telford, UK, (24th February, 2012) – Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd, a leading supplier of first aid equipment, hospital and medical supplies, are now offering an impedance threshold device (ITD), the ResQPOD.

The ResQPOD provides Perfusion on Demand (POD) by regulating pressures in the thorax during the performance of CPR. It is easy to use and provides a unique way to increase circulation during CPR by refilling the heart with blood after each chest compression.

Animal and clinical studies have shown that during CPR, the ResQPOD has the ability to double the blood flow to the heart, increase blood flow to the brain by 50%, and double systolic blood pressure. Overall, the ResQPOD increases the likelihood of successful defibrillation, and thus general survival rates.

A spokesperson for Bound Tree Medical Europe Ltd commented: “The American Heart Association designated the ResQPOD a Class IIa recommendation for increasing blood flow and immediate survival rates in patients in cardiac arrest. The ResQPOD can be used on a face mask or an ET tube and carries a higher recommendation than any medication used to increase circulation in adults in cardiac arrest.

“The ResQPOD is the only impedance threshold device on the market, and we are proud to provide such an innovative piece of technology to our customers.”
