The Tift Regional Medical Center Foundation recently presented two Lifeline Arms to Hope EMS and the Tifton Fire Department. These units are designed to perform Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) en route to the hospital and our first responders were able to obtain the devices.
CPR is an emergency lifesaving procedure that is performed when the heart stops beating. Immediate CPR can double or triple the chances of survival after cardiac arrest. With the Lifeline Arm, this device is attached to the cardiac victim and performs effective and continuous CPR throughout transport.
