Hands-free cardioversion and defibrillation device that delivers consistent pressure while simultaneously delivering shock to adjustable focal points.
Complete design and produce a prototype of the Intra-Vert for patent application, testing, manufacturing, and sales.
The Intra-Vert is a hands-free cardioversion and defibrillation device composed of a single use constricting band with reusable backboard intended to distribute the band effectively to deliver consistent pressure simultaneously while delivering shock to adjustable focal points. The Intra-Vert adjustable band measures chest size and determines appropriate chest compression pressure and resistance before delivering shock. The force in pounds varies per patient need around 18-20 pounds of pressure.
The Intra-Vert is intended to maintain intra-thoracic to extra-thoracic pressure gradient and the reduction of transthoracic impedance through the application of downward pressure during defibrillation/cardiovert, improving emptying of the lungs and closing the gap between the electrodes and ventricles. The Intra-Vert improves the delivery of the current to the heart, including the obese or muscular patient. When used during CPR the Intra-Vert can reduce interruption by maintaining continuous chest compression until energy delivery.
