Advanced Circulatory Systems Receives $1.5 Million From NIH for Study of Cardiac Arrest Resuscitation Techniques
Date:10/13/2008

Oshkosh is one of six sites included in national study

Study needed because of low cardiac arrest survival rates

OSHKOSH, Wis., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Circulatory Systems, Inc. (http://www.advancedcirculatory.com) announced today that it has received an additional $1.5 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue a study testing two devices used in combination on those who experience cardiac arrest outside a hospital. Oshkosh is one of six sites included in the national study.

The study is needed because of the dismally low survival rates for cardiac arrest; the national average for surviving such a cardiac arrest that occurs outside a hospital setting is only one in twenty.

The NIH funding will be used to increase enrollment in the six-site study. The study involves the testing of the ResQPump(R) an active compression/decompression device, in combination with the ResQPOD(R), a device used to increase blood flow to the heart and brain during CPR. The ResQPOD, an impedance threshold device proven to increase circulation, has previously received clearance from the FDA and is in use at more than 1,100 customer sites in the US. The current NIH funded study is the first randomized study in the US to assess results of the ResQPump and ResQPOD used together and comparing results when CPR is performed without these devices. The ResQPump has been tested and is currently in use in Europe. Both devices are designed and manufactured by Advanced Circulatory Systems of Minneapolis, MN.

The six sites involved in the study include Minneapolis, MN; St. Paul, MN; Whatcom County, WA; Oshkosh, WI; suburban Detroit including parts of Oakland and Macomb counties, MI; and Livingston County, MI which includes the city of Ann Arbor.

The use of new technologies as well as improved CPR procedures as recommended by the American Hear
