LyfeTymer Metronome Company, a division of Lazarus Medical Group Inc, has introduced the world’s first CPR Metronome Pen, the writeTYMER.
The writeTYMER is a quality, ballpoint pen that incorporates a built-in LED light at the top. The bright white LED flashes at a rate of 110 beats per minute to act as a guide for ‘Just Hands’ CPR Chest Compression, based on the AHA guidelines for adult CPR.
Studies show less than 100/Min and more than 120/Min has been found not to be effective, according to LyfeTymer.
The device is ideal for training and CPR education, school programs, or any organizations where being ‘CPR Ready’ is required, the company says. It has field applications for use by either professionals (EMS, First Responders, Police, Fire and Hospital ER) or the general public.
CPR (Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation) as applied to cardiac victims has been proven to increase the victim’s chances of survival; which is currently at 6%, the company says.
The average US ambulance response time to cardiac events is ten (10) minutes. Action taken in those critical moments can mean the difference between life and death. Those chest compressions create perfusion to get oxygenated blood to the brain so someone ‘is home’ when the EMT/Paramedics arrive to save the body.
