How do I know that I am performing CPR correctly?

The First Angel Cardio incorporates a "click" sound in its mechanism to indicate that the compression force has been reached (5 to 6 cm). Then release to decompress until the "click" is heard. Both sounds must be heard to perform an effective massage according to the recommendations of the ERC and the Red Cross.

Does the CFA come with instructions?

Never use on a conscious person.

Why is it so important to react quickly in case of cardiac arrest?

In 70% of cases, the accident takes place in front of a witness. The firemen or the doctors of the SAMU arrive on the spot on average between 7 and 10 minutes after the call. At this stage, if no massage has been given, it is often too late. It is therefore vital to act while waiting for help to arrive!

How long should I perform CPR with the CFA?

While waiting for help, massage should be applied to the victim. At the end of each decompression, a "clack" is heard, indicating that a new compression can be performed, at a rate of 100 to 120 compressions/min.

With a defibrillator, do I need a Cardio First Angel too?

To avoid irreversible damage, cardiac massage is necessary IMMEDIATELY after noticing a cardiac arrest and after calling for help. Small, practical and within reach, the Cardio First Angel allows you to perform a perfect massage while waiting for the defibrillator and emergency services to arrive. Automatic defibrillators often require that you also perform cardiac massage.

DWI and defibrillator are therefore complementary.

What is my legal responsibility to the person being resuscitated?

Article 122-7 of the French penal code specifies that a person cannot be criminally prosecuted if he or she carries out an action proportional to the risk. This is why a person who breaks a rib while performing cardiac massage on a person in cardiorespiratory arrest cannot be prosecuted for assault and battery.

On the other hand, it condemns the obstruction of assistance measures and the omission to provide assistance, and in particular the voluntary abstention from assisting a person in danger.

Is there a legal obligation to have a CFA in my company, my home?

Current legislation does not indicate any obligation regarding households, although it is highly recommended to have one in case of cardiac arrest.

Many cardiac accidents occur in the workplace: the very rapid and informed use of a defibrillator can significantly reduce mortality by allowing prompt cardiac resynchronization. Although the presence of a defibrillator in the workplace is not mandatory in all companies, in the event of a cardiac arrest, the employer may be held liable, by virtue of his obligation to protect the physical health of his employees. Nevertheless, in the event of a cardiac arrest, the defibrillator is not sufficient since massage must be practiced. The Cardio First Angel becomes a highly recommended complement for resuscitation. The defibrillator also asks the caregiver to massage. Finally, while waiting for the defibrillator to be used, you must massage: every minute counts.
