The ElevatedCPR Method

The ElevatedCPR Method

The ElevatedCPR method is a technologically-advanced technique for performing device-assisted head up CPR that incorporates raising the head, heart, and thorax in a multi-level elevation, in a controlled sequence, in conjunction with the best practice standards of resuscitation protocols.1

This positioning allows the body to drain venous blood from the brain while CPR is being performed; and the positioning of the patient, the speed at which the patient is elevated after initial supine CPR priming, and the height to which the head is elevated over the heart, and the heart over the lower part of the body, are all important elements of the ElevatedCPR method.7,8,9,11
The ElevatedCPR method is used in conjunction with best practices standards including active compression-decompression CPR (ACD-CPR) or mechanical CPR devices and an impedance threshold device (ITD) to help regulate intrathoracic pressure while CPR is being performed.2,3,4,5

Evidence-Based Benefits of the ElevatedCPR Method

Preclinical studies show that the addition of the ElevatedCPR method to the existing use of an ITD and ACD-CPR or mechanical CPR has been demonstrated to:


Bundled resuscitation using ACD-CPR with controlled sequential elevation increased neurologically-intact survival 6-fold versus standard CPR (in an animal model).10

Immediately and significantly decrease intracranial pressure, while maintaining aortic pressure2,4 reducing the chance of a brain concussion with every compression.2,4,8,9

Heart Icon

Significantly increase coronary perfusion pressure to greater than 70% of normal when two minutes of priming in the lowered position preceded slowly raising the head and thorax to the elevated positions over a two minute period.8,9

The Science Behind the ElevatedCPR Method

The ElevatedCPR method is the first major CPR breakthrough in decades and may potentially offer a significant opportunity to improve the chances for neurologically-intact survival of cardiac arrest when implemented with the proper bundle of devices

Case Studies

Read about how ElevatedCPR therapy — as delivered through the ElevatedCPR therapy bundle of care, including the EleGARD Patient Positioning System — is helping improve neurologically intact outcomes in sudden cardiac arrest patients.

Female patient went into cardiac arrest at work. She had no prior history of arrest. She was treated with bystander CPR and an AED, remaining in VF cardiac arrest. EMS responded and placed her on the EleGARD System, which they had adopted only 2

AdvancedCPR Solutions Receives Clearance for Expanded Indications for Use of EleGARD™ Patient Positioning System

April 27, 2020

[April 27, 2020: Minneapolis, MN] Emerging medical device firm AdvancedCPR Solutions has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for expanded indications for use for its EleGARD Patient Positioning System. The EleGARD System is a Class 1 cardiopulmonary board that can elevate a patient’s head and thorax including during airway management; and during manual CPR, manual CPR adjuncts, CPR with the LUCAS® Chest Compression System and patient transport. “This expanded indication allows us to more effectively describe the use of the EleGARD System with a
