The Zoll AutoPulse Pump is battery operated and performs 100 compressions per minute. It maintained Mr. Bhasin's heartbeat for more than 3hours. The AutoPulse device moves more blood more consistently than is possible with relay teams performing traditional CPR.

Nigel Raghunath, lead consultant in A&E, who treated Mr Bhasin said, "He had never seen such a remarkable case in his 15 years in Accident and Emergency care."
