All patients in cardiac arrest with an arterial line in place in the emergency department will be a potential subject. The FloPatch FP120 device will be placed on patients and the carotid artery peak systolic velocity associated with a systolic blood pressure ≥60 mmHg on a femoral arterial line during a pulse check will be determined.
FloPatch FP120 is an FDA 510(k) cleared device indicated for the non-invasive assessment of blood flow in the carotid artery by medical professionals, such as physicians and nurses. FloPatch uses ultrasound and the Doppler effect to assess blood flow.
