Every year in Russia circa 300,000 people die of cardiac arrest. Modern effective cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) facilitates preserving the blood circulation and breathing functions to the degree, required for the patient’s survival in cardiac arrest. CPR includes the patient’s chest compression at a specific frequency rate and the execution of the induced ventilation of lungs. The review considers the unassisted (manual) CPR methods; the existing devices for CPR are discussed, their advantages and disadvantages are described; the necessity to develop new complex smart mechatronic devices for external chest compression, drastically different from the existing systems, is justified.
