The Lifeline ARM has an extremely simplified Control Panel where just two steps are needed to initiate mechanical CPR:
- Adjust the Compression Piston height relative to the patient’s chest for beginning compressions by using the Up / Down softkey buttons located on the Control Panel of the Compression Module
- Depending on the protocol that is in line with your designated emergency response procedures, choose between “Run Continuous,” which performs chest compressions only (no breathing) for continuous chest compressions, or “Run with Breaths,” which follows the compressions with breaths protocol by using programmed pauses for rescue breaths.
Toggling between the two protocols during the rescue is allowed, to accommodate your local resuscitation protocol. And, at any time, the Pause button may be used to stop compressions when running or resume compressions if stopped.
