ZOLL TO SHOWCASE ADVANCED RESUSCITATION TECHNOLOGY THAT STRONGLY SUPPORTS THE NEW 2015 ERC GUIDELINES AT MEDICA 2015

November 9, 2015—CHELMSFORD, MASS.—ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that its fully integrated portfolio of resuscitation devices and data management solutions will be on display in Hall 11 Booth E55 during Medica 2015, 16-20 November in Dusseldorf, Germany. ZOLL’s products are uniquely capable of helping customers achieve the new recommendations of the 2015 ERC Guidelines.

ZOLL’s Portfolio of Unsurpassed CPR Support

Increasing the quality of CPR has been an ongoing commitment of ZOLL’s since 2002, when it was the first to introduce real-time CPR feedback in its AED Plus®. Today, all ZOLL defibrillators, including the AED Plus, the AED Pro®, the R Series®, and the X Series®, feature Real CPR Help® audio and visual feedback for the correct rate, depth, release, and tracking of idle time. Real CPR Help is the only CPR-feedback technology that, in combination with training, has been shown to impact survival to discharge, as demonstrated in published research.1

ZOLL’s commitment to high-quality CPR is also evident in the company’s suite of tools for optimal resuscitation response, which includes See-Thru CPR® as well as EtCO2 monitoring. 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.

Additional product highlights among ZOLL’s resuscitation portfolio include the LifeVest® Wearable Defibrillator, which provides protection from sudden cardiac death during a patient’s changing cardiac condition; the AutoPulse® Resuscitation System, ZOLL’s automated CPR device; and the LifeBridge® Emergency Cardiac Life Support System.*

Also integral to ZOLL’s product portfolio is the Thermogard XP® Temperature Management System; OneStepPediatric CPR Electrodes, the only electrodes on the market with a built-in CPR sensor that reports CPR quality on young children up to 8 years of age; and the RescueNet® STEMI Management Solution. A new addition to ZOLL’s portfolio is the versatile EMV+® portable critical care ventilator, which is ideal for air medical and ambulance transport of infants (≥5 kg), pediatric patients, and adults.
