SAVER Project: Mechanical Chest Compression Devices

Mechanical chest compression devices are automated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) machines that use either a mechanical piston or load-distributing band to apply compressions to a patient's chest. These devices are intended to be used as an adjunct to CPR as they take over for chest compressions for the responder.
