Sudden unexpected cardiac arrest (SCD) is a major global public health issue, accounting for up to 20% of deaths in Western societies. Rapid and good cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), as well as rapid treatment with defibrillators (AEDs) are essential for survival. Without good CPR pending cardiac arrest, irreversible brain damage will occur after just 5 minutes, and the chance of survival decreases by about 10% per minute from cardiac arrest. There is often a lack of both good CPR knowledge and proximity to AED in the population, and we see that only 10-15% of patients with cardiac arrest survive.
It is well known that even conventional manual resuscitation techniques, even in a hospital environment, are extremely tiring, and that provider-effectiveness decreases after as little as 2 minutes of delivering chest compressions. Every minute without effective CPR and appropriate defibrillation decreases the victim’s chance of survival by 7-10%. Saturation divers work in compact narrow compartments, like diving bells and hyperbaric chambers. The space is very limited, the amount of personnel is limited and manual CPR is very challenging, and in some situations, impossible. There is a need for better chest compressions during CPR in general, and also in a hyperbaric, significantly confined environment. NCCD solves this.
NCCD is a low cost, small, compact and lightweight chest compression device that can substitute manual chest compression during CPR. NCCD is powered by compressed gas, and designed for use in hyperbaric compartments like diving bells and hyperbaric chambers, but can aslo be used where pressurised gas is available on land, at sea and in the air. It contains no electrical parts. The NCCD can be used under water and even when the patient is positioned in a vertical position like during transport and rescue operations.
Operating temperature: -5°C (41F) to 60°C (140F).
Operating sound level: maximum 80 dB at operating distance from NCCD.
Storage temperature: 5°C (41F) to 40°C (104F).
Maximum ambient pressure: 30 bar (435 psi).
Chest belt  : L150 cm, W11 cm
NCCD [1-9] weight: 1950 g
Case size: W265 x D240 x H174 mm
Case with NCCD weight: 3420 g
NCCD Rental Concept
The NCCD is a low-cost device and can be rented from NUI on a yearly basis. The NCCD will be replaced yearly in the rental period, so there is no additional cost for maintenance.
Our clients should evaluate the appropriate number of NCCD units based on their risk assessments and identified needs.
For DSV NUI recommends:
The operational units are sealed, and the seal should not be broken unless an emergency situation occurs. If used in an emergency NUI should be notified and a replacement unit will be shipped as quickly as practically possible.
The training unit are marked and might be used as required. This unit will be replaced yearly together with the operational units.
