Increased Blood Flow in a Heartbeat

Buys Time During Hemodynamic Compromise

ResQGARD® is for treating spontaneously breathing casualties who are hypovolemic and have symptoms of low blood pressure. The device creates a slight amount of therapeutic resistance only when a casualty inhales, which effectively increases blood flow and circulation to vital organs. Studies have shown that the ResQGARD can increase blood pressure by up to 30%.1,2

When intravenous (IV) or Intraosseous (IO) access is not practical or possible, the ResQGARD provides a therapeutic bridge until the casualty can get definitive treatment. The non-invasive device is easily administered by all skill level providers, and safely complements a permissive hypotension approach to trauma management.

ResQGARD is indicated for casualties who present with poor circulation from a variety of causes, e.g. blood loss, dehydration, heat stroke, early sepsis and orthostatic intolerance.
