What is Q-CPR Technology?


New! Click here for an interactive flash presentation of Q-CPR.

Research has documented that patient outcome can be significantly improved by better quality CPR. Q-CPR™ is an exciting new technology developed by Laerdal, the result of collaboration with many leading CPR research centers over recent years.
Life saving CPR is dependent on several coordinated factors, as illustrated in the CPR Quality Circle:

  • Therapy – guiding feedback during resuscitation
  • Training –  guiding feedback during initial and maintenance training
  • Evaluation – post event debriefing and periodic system statistics

Laerdal is proud to announce the introduction of this new technology in collaboration with our partner, Philips Medical Systems, in the HeartStart MRx Monitor/Defibrillator. This is the first in a series of products that will be introduced using Q-CPR technology.

Q-CPR reflects our belief that delivering new lifesaving technologies is a critical part of our mission of helping save lives.
