Challenge: This medical professional is saving lives with an innovative product inspired by near-disaster.
Emergency situations cause panic, leaving people unsure of how to help. Felicia Jackson, the inventor and owner of CPR Wrap, has experienced the trauma of cardiac arrest firsthand. She was certified in CPR but froze when her toddler son stopped breathing in the back seat of her car. Thanks to the quick actions of her husband, their son survived, but Felicia learned a valuable lesson and walked away with a new mission.
Solution: Even people experienced in CPR can forget their training in stressful situations. CPR Wrap makes it possible for anyone to effectively perform CPR at a moment's notice. With over 20 years of medical experience in acute inpatient rehab, outpatient care and home health care, Felicia is applying her knowledge to make performing CPR less intimidating and accessible to everyone.
CPR Wrap is a disposable CPR template that empowers and protects any non-medical bystander during CPR. CPR Wrap is an all-in-one template which has an attached one-way valve mouth barrier for rescue breathing, visual hand placements for proper compressions, and simple CPR instructions that can be translated into any language for a more global usage. The wraps come in sizes of Adult, Child and Infant.
Results: Felicia provides CPR Wraps to CPR Instructors for their client’s post-certification, school systems, hospitals, parents. Their mission is to be able to provide a CPR Wrap to anyone and every location.
Impact: Invaluable! Her journey is to empower every man, woman, and child to save lives and also be a roadmap for other creators to take chances and do the unthinkable.
