Introduction of the AutoPulse™ Resuscitation
System
For years, a variety of attempts have been made to overcome the limitations of manual cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR). Revivant Corporation has developed a practical solution as an adjunct to the method
used by medical professionals to perform CPR chest compressions. The AutoPulse™ Resuscitation
System Model 100 (also known as the AutoPulse System) is the resulting product.
1.1
Indication for Use
The AutoPulse Resuscitation System Model 100 is used by trained personnel as an adjunct to manual
CPR on adult patients in cases of clinical death, as defined by a lack of spontaneous breathing and pulse.
1.2
Description of the System
The AutoPulse Resuscitation System is an automated, portable, battery-powered chest compressor,
which provides chest compressions as an adjunct to performing manual CPR (see Figure 1-1). Use of the
AutoPulse System is intended to reduce the impact of rescuer fatigue and will enable the rescuer to
address additional patient needs.
The AutoPulse System has the following operating parameters:
•
Chest displacement: Equal to 20% reduction in anterior-posterior chest depth.
•
Consistent compression rate and depth.
•
Physiological duty cycle: Fixed at 50 ± 5%.
•
Standardized 15:2 compressions (15 compressions followed by two consecutive 1.5 second
ventilation pauses) or continuous compressions (user selectable).
Table 1-1 provides the patient/AutoPulse System operating parameters.

Patient Alignment and Securing for Transport
Warning: The AutoPulse Platform is not intended for carrying or transporting a patient. The
AutoPulse Platform should be secured to the top of a backboard or other equipment used to
carry or transport the patient, if necessary. During transport, regular checks of the patient’s
alignment should be performed.
The AutoPulse System does not require any patient restraints to perform compressions while the patient
is lying on a flat surface. However, patient restraints should be used to maintain alignment of the patient
to the AutoPulse Platform:
•
If the AutoPulse System cannot be set on a flat level surface
•
If the AutoPulse System is used during extrication or during transport
The AutoPulse Platform is designed to accept standard restraints to maintain patient alignment. The
rescuer can secure a patient of up to 300 pounds to a backboard and maneuver the patient as necessary
while the AutoPulse is performing active compressions.
Caution: Motion can cause the patient to shift and restraints to loosen, so care should be given to the
initial strapping for alignment of the patient to the AutoPulse Platform. Regular checks of
patient alignment to the AutoPulse Platform and alignment of the LifeBand CCA to the
patient's mid-axillary line should be made if the AutoPulse is performing active compressions,
or before active compressions are restarted.
When transporting the patient, lift by supporting the patient and the AutoPulse Platform onto the
transportation device (for example, a gurney or backboard) and place the AutoPulse Platform and patient
within the vehicle during AutoPulse System operation. Securely strap the AutoPulse Platform and patient
to the transportation device.
The AutoPulse Platform can be used in conjunction with a transportation device during transport to
hospital (a gurney or backboard). However, care must be taken to ensure that the patient is properly
strapped to the transportation device using locally-approved procedures for safe transport.
Caution: Straps or restraints used for transportation purposes must not interfere with the operation of
the AutoPulse Platform. Specifically, straps across the patient’s chest may restrict the
compression/decompression of the chest. In general, strapping schemes must not alter the
alignment of the patient to the AutoPulse Platform.
For more information about strapping and patient restraint options, contact Revivant Customer Service
at 1-800-321-4CPR (or 1-408-524-3500).

Maintaining the AutoPulse System
4.1
Charging the Power System Battery
For more information on the AutoPulse Power System and its components, refer to the AutoPulse Power
System User Guide.
To charge a Battery, follow these steps:
1.
Slide the Battery into an available charging bay (see Figure 4-1). Make sure that the Battery locks
into place (locking bar engaged).
Caution: Remove the protective plastic cap from the Battery before attempting to charge the
Battery.
Note:
For optimal charging, make sure that the Battery is at room temperature before insertion
into the Battery Charger.
Note:
Do not slam the Battery into the Battery Charger because doing so may cause damage to
the Battery’s connector.
Note:
The Battery is mechanically keyed so that it can only be inserted in one orientation. Do
not force the Battery into the charging bay. If resistance is met, check for appropriate
orientation, and check to ensure that there are no obstructions to Battery insertion.
Figure 4-1
Battery Charger with Charging Bay
2.
The Battery Charger automatically detects the presence of an AutoPulse Battery.
3.
The Battery Charger’s status will be indicated on the control panel (see Figure 4-2).

Battery Charger Control Panel
To manually run a test-cycle on a Battery, simply press the Battery Charger’s Start Test button at any
time that the Battery Charger is in Charge mode.
Note:
Do not remove a Battery from the Battery Charger until its charging completes or the
Battery’s runtime will be reduced.
Note:
Do not remove a Battery during a test-cycle or the Battery’s runtime will be unknown.
Removing a Battery during a test-cycle may cause the Battery Charger to automatically
enter a test-cycle mode the next time a Battery is inserted into it.
Remove the Battery from the Battery Charger by gripping the Battery while pressing the finger latch
to disengage the locking bar. Pull the Battery straight out until it fully clears the charging bay.
Note:
4.2
Recently-charged Batteries can be warm to the touch. This is a consequence of normal
operation.
Cleaning the AutoPulse Platform
1.
Remove and dispose of the LifeBand Chest Compression Assembly (CCA).
2.
Wipe all the surfaces of the AutoPulse Platform free of foreign matter and spills with a disinfectant
or bactericidal wipe. Check the vents to ensure that they are free and clear of any obstructive matter.
Caution: Do not submerge the AutoPulse Platform in liquid.
3.
Ensure that the AutoPulse Platform is dry before storing.
4.3
1.
Storing the AutoPulse Platform
The AutoPulse Platform should be powered down before it is stored.
Note:
The AutoPulse Platform will automatically power down after 10 minutes of inactivity.
2.
The AutoPulse Platform should be returned to its storage case, or a dust cover used, before being
stored.
3.
The AutoPulse Platform should be stored in a cool, dry place.
4.4
Maintenance
There are no user-serviceable parts in the AutoPulse Platform. In case of repair or service, contact the
manufacturer.

Troubleshooting Procedures
In the event of a user advisory, fault or system error, the User Control Panel Alert light-emitting diode
(LED) illuminates (refer to Section 1.4, “User Controls and Indicators”). Consider the information in this
chapter.
Warning: If a persistent fault or system error occurs during active operation, immediately revert to
manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
5.1
Troubleshooting Batteries
If a Battery’s charge falls too low, a Low Battery warning will appear on the Control Panel Display. The
Low Battery warning display will be accompanied with an audio warning of four rapid beeps which will
be followed by two beeps every 30 seconds until the battery is replaced or depleted. If operation
continues without changing the Battery, a Replace Battery screen will appear (see Figure 5-1 and Figure
5-2). If this is the case:
•
Press the ON/OFF button to power down the AutoPulse Platform.
•
Replace the AutoPulse Power System Battery with a new, fully-charged Battery. Press the ON/OFF
button followed by the Start/Continue button again.

Troubleshooting User Advisories and Faults
The AutoPulse System enters a User Advisory state (see Figure 5-3) or the Fault State (see Figure 5-4)
when one of several conditions is detected. A User Advisory generally indicates that a misalignment or
inappropriate movement of the patient or the LifeBand CCA has occurred. A Fault generally indicates
that the AutoPulse has detected an inappropriate internal condition. Both conditions are typically
correctable by the operator. Follow the instructions on the screen and then attempt to RESTART active
operation by pressing the Start/Continue button. If that does not work you should follow these general
steps to troubleshoot Advisories and Faults:
1.
Check for correct patient alignment (refer to Section 3.1, "Deploying the AutoPulse System" for
more information), fully extend both LifeBand chest bands and attempt to RESTART active
operation by pressing the Start/Continue button.
2.
If the user advisory or fault persists:
• Remove the LifeBand CCA assembly from, and fully re-insert into, the AutoPulse Platform (refer
to Section 2.1, "LifeBand Chest Compression Assembly (CCA) Installation and Removal") and then
press the Start/Continue button again.
• Remove and replace the LifeBand CCA with a new LifeBand CCA and then press the Start/
Continue button again.
• Check the AutoPulse Platform for blocked vents.
3.
If any Fault indicator cannot be rectified, contact the manufacturer.
