 AutoPulse Machine Brings Back Man to Life After Three and Half Hours

An AutoPulse machine that performed 20,000 life-saving heart compressions brought back a man whose heart had stopped working after three and a half hours. Arun Bhasin, 53 who was found unconscious was rushed to Croydon University Hospital but suffered a cardiac arrest.

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.
