iArrest gives healthcare professionals a powerful tool to navigate stressful and challenging cardiac arrest scenarios. Whether as a Paramedic on scene or as a clinician in hospital, iArrest can assist in running structured and effective adult cardiac arrests. Developed by experienced clinicians regularly responding to cardiac arrest calls, iArrest takes into consideration the most recent Resuscitation Council (UK) Guidelines 2021.
Learning from the aviation industry, iArrest serves as a safety checklist for basic tasks that can easily be overlooked in critical situations. iArrest also incorporates a number of timers to assist with rhythm analysis, adrenaline administration and arrest documentation. It will remind the user via audible and visual cues about necessary interventions, even if a clinician’s phone is muted. iArrest has been programmed to prevent phones from going into sleep mode, in order to ensure continuous use throughout the arrest.
iArrest will record the exact time an important event or an intervention has occurred and present the user with a detailed log of events. These logs can be copied to the clipboard and used for documentation and record keeping.
iArrest is currently undergoing extensive testing in simulated and real world scenarios.
We are continuously improving and expanding on iArrest’s functionality.
