Information on primeCPR
- When attached to the patient’s chest, the sensor provides real-time feedback on the performed CPR compressions with measurement of depth and rate for each single compression, therefore monitoring their quality.
- The sensor is suitable for use on adults, and children above the age of 8 years.
- The primeCPR easy feedback sensor is an unsterile, single patient use consumable.
- Use of primeCPR is identified by a green port on your device and a corresponding green plug on the intermediate cable.
Preparing for use of primeCPR
- Ensure the primeCPR sensor intermediate cable is connected to your device and undamaged.
- Ensure the sensor packaging is not damaged and the expiration date has not passed.
- Connect the primeCPR easy feedback sensor to the intermediate cable.
Ensure the defibrillator is powered on and in AED or manual mode.
If configured to do so, this action prompt pictogram may appear on your screen. The message can be closed by selecting the [OK] soft key.
The visual and audible notifications of “Push harder” occurs when the recommended thorax compression depth has not been reached. The prompt is repeated every 7 seconds until the recommended compression depth has been achieved and the audible and visual message “Good compressions” occurs.
The optional message of “Fully release” occurs as the reminder for fully release on the upstroke to enable the sensor to re-calibrate.
🚨 These audible and visual messages will not occur when:
- The metronome is in a ventilation phase
- During the ECG analysis in AED mode
- The device is ready to shock
- The resuscitation is finished
As a configurable option, the retrospective CPR evaluation can be printed via the mission browser.

Follow your organisation’s Infection Control policy and procedures, with an awareness that use of non-manufacturer recommended agents may cause damage to the equipment and its components, over time. Adhere to the User Manual for recommended cleaning and disinfection agents.
