November 9, 2009CHELMSFORD, MASS.–ZOLL Medical Corporation (Nasdaq GS: ZOLL), a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, today announced that it will display its clinical portfolio of products—including the R Series® Code-Ready® defibrillators for hospitals and new Intravascular Temperature Management Solutions at MEDICA 2009 (Hall 11/E55), 18 November through 21 November, at the Düsseldorf Trade Fair Centre in Germany. 

ZOLL’s R Series Code-Ready Defibrillators, the original ALS and the newer R Series Plus, now offer mainstream capnography (EtCO2) and non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP) options. These additional monitoring parameters assist rescuers before, during, and after a cardiac arrest.  The R Series is designed to extend “Simple, Smart, Ready” defibrillation to every hospital department with advanced, cost-effective solutions for resuscitation. The R Series BLS is an easy-to-use AED that becomes a manual defibrillator with the press of a button. The R Series ALS is the most advanced ALS defibrillator available with networking capabilities and See-Thru CPR®. The R Series Plus, which has both AED and ALS capabilities, also has networking capabilities and See-Thru CPR®. Like all other ZOLL defibrillators, these models provide the Real CPR Help® feature.

All R Series defibrillators use the same uniform operating system common to all ZOLL defibrillators. The cables, paddles, batteries, handles, and electrodes are also common to ensure clinicians won’t encounter a mismatch in a time of crisis.  In addition, all R Series models can use wireless networking to ensure code-readiness. 

New to ZOLL is Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM). These new products offer health care providers the power and control they need to rapidly, safely, and effectively manage the core body temperature of critically ill or surgical patients.  The Thermogard XP®Advanced Temperature Management System delivers accurate, easy-to-use and cost-effective control for both cooling and warming applications.  The full line of catheters provides central venous infusion capabilities.  

Also new to the ZOLL exhibit will be the PocketCPR® for the iPhone®, an application which provides CPR training with real-time feedback. The application provides clear visual and audio step-by-step coaching on CPR performance and includes the initial steps to follow in the Chain of Survival.      

In addition, ZOLL will be demonstrating the newly-released version of its Ambulance Pad electronic patient record system. Ambulance Pad is the first field data solution in the industry to combine proven, reliable technology with the most advanced user interface available that allows EMS Services to eliminate inefficient paper processes, increase manpower efficiency, and improve compliance.

Ambulance Pad is a key component of the fully integrated RescueNet® suite. From the time a call is dispatched, the data automatically flows to the medics in the field and, ultimately, to the EMS’ billing department. The results are accurate, timely electronic patient care reports and faster collections. 

Additional products on display include:

  • The AutoPulse Plus, which integrates the AutoPulse® Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump and the E Series® defibrillator to provide new benefits such as fewer CPR interruptions, decreased no-flow time, and the ability to shock during the relaxation phase of a compression, which has been shown in clinical studies as the optimal point for defibrillation. 
  • STEMI solutions that enable hospitals to rapidly transmit data from the field into the cath lab to assist clinicians in meeting standards for door-to-balloon times.
  • ZOLL’s complete line of professional defibrillators and AEDs featuring unique technologies including:

Real CPR Help® feedback has been incorporated into all ZOLL defibrillators and AEDs to help rescuers provide high-quality manual CPR. This feedback technology features real-time auditory and visual feedback for gauging the rate and depth of CPR chest compressions.   

•See-Thru CPR®, offered on the R Series, E Series and AED Pro®, is an industry-unique filtering technology that allows professional rescuers to view a patient’s underlying cardiac rhythm by filtering CPR artifact during resuscitation efforts.
