Manual chest compression method as a part of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) is a common, but not necessarily effective method of emergency in cases of the sudden cardiac arrest. In turn, the efficiency of methods using special apparatus for CPR depends on how a particular automatic system is simple to set up, operate and maintain. The article presents the data on the Russian External Cardiac Compressor (ECC) of original design for efficient chest compression and maintaining patient’s blood pressure at the required level. The algorithms of automatic operation of the ECC and the results of experimental measurements, confirming the efficiency of the proposed algorithms are described. This is the first publication on the new Russian ECC and methods of its operation.
