CPR TRAINING TOOL FOR HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS
The heart is one of the vital organs of the human body whose pumping action ensures the supply of blood to every single cell of the body. This supply may be interrupted because of cardiac arrest which directly affects the drainage of blood from the heart to other body parts causing arrhythmias and is one of the underlying causes of cardiovascular death. However, this effect can be reversed by Cardiopulmonary resuscitation which is a life-saving technique. CPR is done on patients manually to revive the blood flow & pumping action of the heart, enabling it to pump effectively. To avoid the potential negative impacts of applying excess pressure on ribs during CPR which may cause rib fracture to the individual, a complete understanding of delivering CPR is required. Having this idea, we design a cost-effective CPR Controller Manikin to train health care providers & nursing students about CPR to improve their efficiency in lesser time. This training tool can take account of all the basic parameters of Quality CPR(QCPR) including no. of compressions, force delivered, depth of compressions, no. of breath, correct hand position, and air pressure delivered & displaying them on software. The gadget is distinctive as it not only aids in the training of the health care providers but also ensures that the procedure is up to the mark in delivering QCPR to the patient
