Experts Will Discuss How Collecting Data Can Improve Outcomes during a ZOLL-sponsored Symposium

October 20, 2015—CHELMSFORD, MASS.—ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, today announced that it will display its fully integrated advanced resuscitation solutions and acute critical care solutions in booth A02 during the European Resuscitation Council (ERC) 2015 Congress 29-31 October in Prague, Czech Republic.

ZOLL’s Portfolio of Unsurpassed CPR Support

ZOLL’s commitment to high-quality CPR is evident in the company’s suite of technology products for optimal resuscitation response. Virtually all ZOLL defibrillators, from AEDs to professional manual defibrillators, feature Real CPR Help®, the only CPR-feedback technology that has been shown to impact survival-to-discharge, as demonstrated in published research.1

In addition, See-Thru CPR®, ZOLL’s proprietary technology, which minimizes the duration of pauses in CPR to enable rescuers to see an organized, underlying rhythm, is available on the R Series®, the X Series®, and the AED Pro®.

Product highlights among ZOLL’s resuscitation portfolio include the R Series® family of monitor/defibrillators for hospitals, the X Series® Monitor/Defibrillator for emergency medicine and critical care patient transport, the AutoPulse® Resuscitation System, ZOLL’s automated CPR device, the LifeBridge® Emergency Cardiac Life Support System,* and the company’s Thermogard XP® Temperature Management System. A new addition to ZOLL’s portfolio is the ResQPOD® ITD, an impedance threshold device (ITD) that enhances perfusion during CPR.

ZOLL’s products are in compliance with the new 2015 ERC and American Heart Association Guidelines.

Lunchtime Symposium: “Debugging Resuscitation—The Tools Are Available Today”

ZOLL, a principal sponsor and business partner of the ERC, will host a lunchtime symposium from 12:45 p.m. to 13:45 p.m., Friday, 30 October in Panorama Hall at the Prague Congress Centre. The outcome of a resuscitation event depends on many factors. One of the tools to identify these factors and improve clinical outcomes is collecting data during codes. Vinay M. Nadkarni, M.D., Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia; Adam Hanna, Resuscitation Officer, Causeway Hospital, Northern Health and Social Care Trust, Northern Ireland; and Paul Younger, Advanced Paramedic, North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, will be the featured speakers.
