CPR is essential to patient survival. The ResQ Pod has made its first appearance in Peoria.
UPDATE: Last week the ResQ Pod, and ResQ Pump were placed in all Peoria Fire Department vehicles as another way to assist fire assets in saving lives. The equipment has a higher rate of saves compared to traditional methods of CPR.
Only one day after the release of the new ResQCPR system were used by Peoria Fire Company Engine 19 for the very first time.
The patient was experiencing a cardiac emergency and a bystander CPR was initiated until the arrival of PFD E-19. Once on scene, PFD E-19 continued patient resuscitation utilizing the ResQ System. Arrival of Advanced Medical Transport took the patient to the hospital where the patient outcome looks favorable.
