Increased Blood Flow in a Heartbeat
ResQGARD® creates slight inspiratory resistance to increase circulation in conscious, breathing patients with low blood pressure due to dehydration, heat shock, blood loss, early sepsis and orthostatic intolerance. When IV or IO access is not practical, the device can provide a bridge to help improve blood flow to vital organs until the casualty can get proper treatment.
ResQGARD® is for treating spontaneously breathing casualties who are hypovolemic and have symptoms of shock. The device creates a slight amount of therapeutic resistance only when a casualty inhales, which increases blood flow and circulation to vital organs. Studies have shown that the ResQGARD can increase blood pressure up to 30%.1,2
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 low volume resuscitation 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.
