1. A method for diverting emboli within a patient, comprising:
detecting a presence of emboli in a first vascular location of a patient;
when the presence of emboli is detected, actuating a compression member aligned with a second vascular location of the patient when a collar supporting the compression member is positioned at least partially around a portion of the patient, from an unactuated state to an actuated state in which at least a portion of the compression member (i) is closer to the second vascular location than while in the unactuated state and (ii) compresses and limits blood flow through the second vascular location.
