ZOLL TO SHOWCASE EXPANDED PORTFOLIO OF ADVANCED RESUSCITATION AND ACUTE CRITICAL CARE TECHNOLOGIES AT MEDICA 2016

November 8, 2016—CHELMSFORD, MASS.—ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that its expanded and fully integrated portfolio of resuscitation and acute critical care technologies and data management solutions will be on display in Booth E55/Hall 11 during MEDICA 2016, 14-17 November in Dusseldorf, Germany. ZOLL’s products are uniquely capable of helping customers achieve the recommendations in the ERC Guidelines.

Featured as part of the expanding ZOLL family of products is the ZOLL AED 3™* and the ZOLL AED 3™ BLS* (basic life support). These new AEDs build on ZOLL’s legacy of introducing new technology to the AED market to help improve outcomes for cardiac arrest patients. Enhanced Real CPR Help® gives rescuers the power to know when they are providing high-quality chest compressions. ZOLL has also introduced the world’s first 5-year universal electrode for both adult and pediatric patients, further improving cost of ownership. Every ZOLL AED 3 comes with Program Management Onboard™, which can notify users immediately if the device fails a self-test, or if the battery is due to be replaced, ensuring the device is ready to be used.

The ZOLL AED 3 BLS model is designed specifically for the needs of first responders with the CPR Dashboard™ and the ability to deliver the patient record directly to health care providers.

Further resuscitation solutions from ZOLL at MEDICA include:

Comprehensive Portfolio for Pre-hospital Care

ZOLL’s EMS products are designed to maximize care for the everyday situations that rescuers encounter. The small and lightweight X Series® Monitor/Defibrillator delivers unsurpassed monitoring capabilities and enables system-independent 12-lead transmission to the hospital. The new RapidShock™* functionality is the fastest rhythm analysis in the world, giving the rescuer a Shock/No Shock decision in as little as 3 seconds.

The ResQCPR™ System is a combination of two medical devices, the CardioPump® ACD-CPR Device and the ResQPOD® Impedance Threshold Device (ITD). The devices are used together during CPR to create an enhanced vacuum in the chest that improves blood flow to the brain and vital organs during cardiac arrest.

The AutoPulse® Resuscitation System is ZOLL’s automated CPR device. Designed for Resuscitation on the Move™, it delivers high-quality CPR whenever and wherever it’s needed—especially during transport of critically ill patients. In a meta-analysis of 12 comparative clinical trials, the AutoPulse improved the odds of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) by 62% when compared to manual CPR.1

When used in the hospital, the AutoPulse helps staff achieve a more organized code when resources are constrained on nights and weekends, and in the cardiac catheterization lab to keep staff members safe from radiation.

Resuscitation Solutions for the Hospital Environment

The R Series® Monitor/Defibrillator includes a CPR Dashboard that provides real-time feedback on compression quality, See-Thru CPR® to reduce the duration of pauses during CPR by filtering out CPR artifact, and EtCO2 to signal the earliest changes in patient condition. Post-event, comprehensive software solutions support continuous quality improvement.

The company's products for effective and safe patient temperature management are the Thermogard XP® System and the STx™ Surface Pad System. For patients with acute heart-lung failure, the LifeBridge® Emergency Cardiac Life Support System* is a compact, portable, and easy-to-use cardiopulmonary support system.

Leading-edge Resuscitation Technologies for the Military

Whether on the battlefield, during aeromedical transport, or in a CONUS or VA hospital, ZOLL has solutions to help provide the highest quality casualty care. The full-featured EMV+® 731 ventilator is lightweight, rugged, and has a long 10-hour battery life to accommodate the needs of the military. The Propaq® M is the standard in vital signs monitoring with advanced parameters, while the Propaq MD Monitor/Defibrillator features Real CPR Help and See-Thru CPR.
