CPR-bot: And The Beat Goes On – MedGadget – www.medgadget.com

MedGadget found one of my favorite gadgets, an automatic CPR-giver: CPR-bot: And The Beat Goes On – MedGadget – www.medgadget.com.

I was an EMT in an ED before I went to med school, and I’ve done my share of CPR.  Doing it right is hard work, and isn’t nearly as easy as it looks on TV.  Mechanical widgets like this are not just better from a mechanical performance standpoint, but they’re force-multipliers: your techs or nurses can now be doing something other than hard manual labor.

And now that I’ve said that, your rescue squad isn’t going to show up with one of these.  Please take a basic CPR course.


  1. Basic CPR and first aid training should be a requirement for all able-bodied grade school graduates. Pass it on.
