Chest Compressors Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment

Chest compressors are used to save lives during medical emergencies. Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a process that helps induce rescue breaths at the time of a medical emergency. Chest compressors are life savers for patients suffering from a cardiac arrest, as chest compressors apply a cardiac massage to patient for optimise the flow of blood to the heart. Chest compressors are mostly used by healthcare professionals who handle emergency medical conditions at various places. The CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) method is used for maintaining the blood flow and supply of air to the lungs. Modern chest compressors work automatically at a particular pressure based on the type of emergency and the body mass index of the patient. Hospitals have all types of chest compressors, which include manual and automatic, as pressure applied to the chest should be in a proper ratio for the body to respond appropriately. The traditional method for CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) involves the application of pressure by hand and blowing the air by mouth, however, modern chest compressors apply pressure based on the nature of the medical emergency and taking into consideration other health-related factors of patients.      

Chest Compressors Market: Drivers and Restraints
