Vest CPR

CPR using a proprietary vest to increase chest pressure. The first-generation device used a pneumatically cycled bladder, but never saw wide adoption as it was tethered to electric current. The second generation device (Autopulse) is portable and applies pressure in a circumferential fashion as opposed to the more traumatic point—sternal pressure—of manual CPR.
