Advanced Circulatory has developed a novel platform therapy called Perfusion on Demand™- a therapy that has life saving implications for multiple emergency medical conditions. Perfusion on Demand is a non-invasive therapy that increases circulation, protecting the heart, brain and other vital organs when blood flow is compromised. This gives rescuers and caregivers the potential to return people to a full life after severe medical emergencies, including sudden cardiac arrest, hemorrhagic shock and traumatic brain injury. The company’s current focus is in the sudden cardiac arrest market, which is an estimated $700 million market for Perfusion on Demand products. The company estimates the global market opportunity for Perfusion on Demand products to be $3.3 billion. Advanced Circulatory currently manufactures and markets the ResQPOD® (Perfusion on Demand) and the ResQGARD™ Impedance Threshold Devices.
