Success Story

Advanced Circulatory Systems Receives 2012 Tibbetts Award

Congratulations to Advanced Circulatory Systems on its 2012 Tibbetts Award. The Tibbetts Awards, given each year by the U.S. Small Business Administration, honor outstanding small businesses and individuals that exemplify the best in the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.

Advanced Circulatory Systems develops technologies that non-invasively increase blood flow throughout the body and increase the chance of survival for patients suffering medical emergencies. Since 2000, the NHLBI has awarded Advanced Circulatory Systems more than $8 million to perform research and clinical trials on devices to improve cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). This research has resulted in the commercial availability of ResQPOD®, an easy to use device that increases circulation during CPR. The NHLBI continues to support research being conducted by Advanced Circulatory Systems, including the development of resuscitation devices for children.
