ArrestPACs are a low-cost, effective addition to ambulance services, fire departments, and any EMS providers responsible for cardiac arrest treatment and resuscitation.
Cardiac arrest patients stand to benefit from being treated with ArrestPACs, as improved survival rates may accompany the consistent following of ACLS treatment protocols (notably the American Heart Association algorithms).
Further, paramedics benefit from a tool that helps them more consistently follow ACLS treatment protocols - no matter how long ago they may have been trained, or when they may have last treated a cardiac arrest patient.
Advance life support for cardiac arrests on the scene includes immediate cardiopulmonary resuscitation, ventilation, and the administration of antiarrhythmics and/or vasopressors until a return of spontaneous circulation.
The doctors' solution was to create ArrestPAC: A cardiac arrest treatment bag that provides direction, organization, and efficiency to one of the most stressful events in emergency medicine!
ArrestPAC is designed to quickly guide paramedics through the American Heart Association algorithms for cardiac arrest treatment, both in presentation and content.
For example, the ArrestPAC unfolds in a way that presents the correct treatments in the correct order for EMS providers to follow American Heart Association algorithms simply by opening and deploying its contents.
Each ArrestPAC includes quick-reference cards reminding EMS providers of individual responsibilities and workflows in the treatment of patients displaying V-FIB, V-TACH, PEA, or Asystole.
ArrestPAC's patent-pending design defaults to the American Heart Association algorithms for treatment, but allows variation to accommodate the wishes of individual medical directors in modifying treatment protocols. ArrestPACs are thus flexible tools for promoting ACLS standards, even when local standards vary from American Heart Association algorithms.
