NBC News

Over 75 NBC news stations across the U.S. and Canada aired a Health Check segment about PocketCPR. Called the “in your pocket CPR coach” NBC reported PocketCPR could be the difference between life and death in an emergency. NBC also reported that “People who tried the device say it gives them extra confidence, to make sure they're performing CPR correctly.”


Gov. Janet Napolitano calls cardiac arrest a health crisis in Arizona. Officials want more people to learn CPR, and now a small device could have a big impact on making sure they do it properly. CPR could save lives, but many people panic and they're hesitant to jump in. Lani Clark, SHARE (Save Hearts in Arizona Registry and Education) program director says, "For fear of doing something wrong, and causing some harm, they just call 911 and wait for EMS to get there." But those seconds can make the difference between life and death. A new training tool called PocketCPR is designed to give people the confidence they need to step in until paramedics arrive. The FDA approved device is battery operated and evaluates compression quality every minute. "Once they hear how fast they're supposed to be, and they get feedback from this, I think it does increase their level of confidence in doing it on a real person." The SHARE state program is kicking off a statewide initiative in the fall. Each middle and high school in Arizona will receive a packet that contains a PocketCPR device and an informational video shot at Catalina Foothills High School. Schools will then decide if they want to use the tools. While the PocketCPR device is no substitute for proper training, it's a quick start. "You can learn it without it, but chances are, you're not going to push fast enough or hard enough. So, it's a good tool to help learn the compressions." CPR guidelines used to be 100 compressions, followed by 2 breaths. Last year, researchers at University of Arizona's Sarver Heart Center determined using only chest compressions was just as effective. The PocketCPR device costs just under $200.
