CPRmeter 2 Device and App Intro
In the early critical moments of a cardiac arrest, the CPRmeter 2 helps first responders optimize CPR performance by providing real-time feedback on essential parameters of CPR.
The consensus is clear, high-quality CPR has been shown to save lives.1,2 However, how do you know if your teams are consistently delivering high-quality compressions? The CPRmeter 2 is a simple tool you can use to ensure high-quality compressions are delivered by all the responders on scene.3,4 The CPRmeter 2 provides real-time measured feedback on compression rate (cpm), depth (mm), release (g), compressions count, and inactivity time during CPR, while also enabling responders to self-evaluate their performance with event statistics on the spot.
Response systems to cardiac arrest vary, but we know that the sooner high quality CPR can be initiated, the better chances for positive patient outcomes.5 Equipping front line teams with the CPRmeter 2 can help ensure high quality throughout the resuscitation event, while complementing ongoing improvement initiatives with objective feedback.3,4
Review key performance statistics of delivered compressions with one touch after the event. Resuscitation response scenes tend to be hectic with dispersing responders. Having instant access to objective key performance metrics can lead to quick feedback and debriefing, which has been shown to improve performance and outcomes.6,7,8
The CPRmeter 2 with QCPR technology provides real-time coaching and summative feedback to help rescuers optimize CPR performance in a clinical setting. Combined with the CPRmeter App, organizations can now drive quality improvement initiatives with detailed and shareable insights on CPR performance.
By rotating the view within the app, providers can examine visual feedback of their clinical or training performance. This detailed view delivers insights on the essential parameters of CPR. In addition, providers can annotate important events such as obtaining Return of Spontaneous Circulation.

CPRmeter 2 has two embedded sensors: one measuring acceleration and another measuring force. A sophisticated microprocessor continuously measures both of these parameters during each compression, and special algorithms convert the collected data into meaningful information.
The accelerometer measures the depth and rate of chest wall movement during each compression and converts it into distance travelled. The force sensor measures the force applied during CPR and is used for several purposes, the most important being the ability to detect if pressure is fully released between compressions, or in other words providing feedback on if the responder is leaning during CPR.
CPRmeter 2 utilizes similar Q-CPR technology found in the Philips MRx, Philips XL+ and Philips FR3 defibrillators.
CPR feedback devices (CPRmeter) have been shown to improve the quality of CPR, which can ultimately save lives.
Thus, there are two CPRmeters 2 with different age indications addressing different markets, affecting User Guides and product labeling.
Catalogue number and description
When a shock is required the CPRmeter 2 can remain applied to the patient's chest but compressions should be stopped, hands removed from the CPRmeter 2 and remain clear of all patient contact during defibrillation or when otherwise required, in accordance with a proper defibrillation protocol.
You should switch off the feedback given from the manikin. The CPRmeter 2 is a medical device which has been designed to provide the rescuer with CPR guidance for use in a wide range of patients with a range of complex chest properties. CPR manikins tend to have a simplified mechanical model of a chest, which are suitable for training of users in performing CPR. These two models therefore tend to have different measurement technologies and tolerances making it difficult to compare and follow both sets of feedback provided.
CPRmeter 2 is not intended for use in a moving environment, such as an ambulance. If used during patient transport, CPRmeter 2 may provide inaccurate feedback. If CPR is indicated in a moving environment, do not rely on CPRmeter 2 depth feedback during such conditions. It is not necessary to remove the device from the patient.
Yes, the CPRmeter 2 has an IP 55 rating.
Protected from limited dust ingress.
Protected from pressure water jets from any direction.
CPRmeter 2 continuously monitors the power of its 2 AAA batteries. The low battery indicator will be shown during a CPR event if the remaining power is less than that required for an entire CPR event. The battery should last for a minimum of 10 episodes of 30 minutes continuous CPR. If CPRmeter 2 remains in standby mode then the battery should last 2 years and for two 30 minute CPR events. We recommend use of high quality alkaline batteries for use with the CPRmeter 2.
The CPR event statistics are stored when CPRmeter 2 is turned off. When turned on again, the statistics from the stored CPR event can be reviewed. When CPRmeter 2 is used in a new CPR event, the preceding event's statistics are removed from the Quick Review and the new event's statistics are shown in Q-CPR Quick Review.
Q-CPR is a trademarked technology platform developed by Laerdal to help train providers deliver guideline quality CPR in real-life emergencies. This technology offers objective measurement and corrective feedback on essential CPR parameters, as well as parameter logging for subsequent debriefing or analysis.
The Patient Adhesive should be replaced after clinical use, or every two years.
The mobile App was created with the purpose of giving users the possibility to debrief in much higher detail, with accurate data that is simple to access, store, share and visualize.
With just a few clicks, you can access in-depth debriefings immediately after events and share it with your team or quality managers.
