LOOP, there it is
2014 saw us causing a lot of commotion on the industry tradeshow circuit with LOOP contests and giveaways at our HSI booth, and we hope you had a chance to join in on the fun. Our LOOP CPR skills game even won some recognition this year, as a JEMS Hot Product award winner by EMS Today as well as the recipient of a 2014 New Product of the Year award from Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) magazine.
LOOP recently got a software update to enhance your user experience. New music tracks, including an optional metronome overlay feature, and support for two additional compression rates are included in the update. For those instructors offering compression-only CPR, a resuscitation technique using chest compressions without rescue breathing, the game now includes a compression-only mode.
You can see a short video about LOOPs new features and get instructions on how to download your new software here.
(Speaking of music tracks, click here to read about how music can help you keep that all-important beat when you are performing or teaching chest compressions.)
