If Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) fails, EPR-Technologies takes an innovative, new approach to the treatment


Traumatic exsanguination (bleeding out) following shootings, vehicular accidents, or other serious traumatic injuries, or from other causes of cardiac arrest despite CPR, kills approximately 2,000 people per day in the United States, according to the American Heart Association. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) appears to be ineffective in the majority of these cases, which is worrisome.

EPR-Technologies is pursuing the development of an unprecedented standard of emergency care when CPR fails; namely, Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation. Innovative technology is designed to give people hope for survival. The goal is to reduce the number of people who die during emergencies resulting from school shootings, sudden cardiac arrest, and vehicular accidents.

At the launch of EPR-Technologies, Chairman and CEO Lyn Yaffe, M.D. said that rapid profound hypothermia will revolutionize resuscitation, providing one more chance to save a life when CPR fails, buying time for critical surgical and medical interventions, followed by delayed resuscitation and anticipated recovery. New standards for emergency care will be established through EPR. Dr. Peter Safar, M.D., (1924-2003), the father of CPR and a pioneer in rapid profound hypothermia, always stated that the goal was to “to save hearts and brains too good to die.” To that end, “EPR-Technologies is devoted.”

The Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, Maryland, is conducting an EPR feasibility clinical trial approved by the FDA. At first, the technology was designed to help save the lives of soldiers who had been mortally wounded on the battlefield. Over the past few years, the Army Medical Research and Materiel Command has invested $17.5 million in the development of the emergency preservation and resuscitation procedure.

In their early experiments, the term “suspended animation,” popular in science fiction, was first used by EPR researchers to describe the effects of rapid, profound hypothermia. Suspended animation, like the current, preferred term “Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation,” can be defined as a treatment to preserve the viability of the entire organism when there is ischemia or lack of oxygen, such as during cardiac arrest. For many years, researchers have sought to rapidly and profoundly reduce body temperature through experiments involving suspended animation and EPR.

It was designed to induce rapid hypothermia, a state in which no oxygen delivery is required for 3+ hours, so that the patient could be transported to the hospital, where immediate surgical repairs and medical interventions could be carried out, followed by the restoration of blood volume and delayed resuscitation, using cardiopulmonary bypass. In scientific terms (CPB). A new resuscitation method, EPR, is being used to save the lives of loved ones who are too precious to be put at risk.

You can go a while without blood if you’re cold enough, according to a professor of shock trauma surgery at the Maryland Shock Trauma Center and EPR’s lead trauma surgeon. “We believe that we can buy time.” Our doctors are optimistic because it’s better than what we have now and could save a lot of lives. An emergency preservation and resuscitation procedure is called (EPR). “It’s going to be a paradigm shift.”

A crowdfund campaign and an investment opportunity have been launched by EPR-Technologies to make rapid profound hypothermia available in all trauma centres, hospitals, and emergency rooms.

Information about EPR-Technologies

Emergency Preservation and Resuscitation (EPR) products developed by EPR-Technologies, a biomedical spinoff from the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research at the University of Pittsburgh, aim to save lives by rapidly lowering the body’s core temperature to dangerously low levels.
