February 17, 2017—CHELMSFORD, MASS.—ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, will offer EMS Today attendees the opportunity to experience the company’s expanded portfolio of advanced CPR and acute critical care technologies, along with its integrated data solutions, in booth 1101 on February 23–25 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City.

The one-of-a-kind rescuer experience available from ZOLL at EMS Today includes:

The ZOLL CPR Challenge Experience

Using the ZOLL X Series® Monitor/Defibrillator, show attendees will have a chance to test their CPR skills with and without the benefit of Real CPR Help®, ZOLL’s real-time CPR feedback technology. ZOLL’s RescueNet® CaseReview software will provide participants with a detailed analysis of their CPR performance. ZOLL’s breakthrough CPR technologies, in conjunction with scenario-based training, have been shown to almost triple survival-to-hospital discharge with favorable neurological outcomes.1

The Patient Transport Experience

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience moving patients with ongoing mechanical CPR using the AutoPulse® Resuscitation System. Participants will maneuver a patient through a course of stairs and tight turns while the AutoPulse performs continuous high-quality CPR. Designed for Resuscitation on the Move™, a recent study showed that the AutoPulse had a significant survival benefit when compared to manual CPR when resuscitation efforts lasted longer than 16 minutes.2 And 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.3

The ResQCPR System Experience

Featured as part of the expanding ZOLL family of products is the ResQCPR™ System, which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as the first and only CPR adjunct device indicated to improve the likelihood of survival in adults who have experienced non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest. Consisting of the ResQPUMP® and the ResQPOD® 16, the two-device combination was shown in a large clinical trial to improve survival to one year from out-of-hospital, non-traumatic cardiac arrest by 49% when compared to treatment with conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).4

The RescueNet Experience

The ZOLL RescueNet Experience shows attendees the journey of patient data from dispatch through discharge. When EMS software solutions are truly integrated, critical incident and patient data follow the patient from dispatch all the way through to post-event billing, saving EMS agencies both time and money.

The Ventilator Experience

With ZOLL’s EMV+® and AEV® Ventilators, participants will have a unique anatomical experience by seeing firsthand how actual lungs adapt to each ventilator mode. Both full-featured ventilator models are lightweight, rugged, and have a 10-hour battery life to accommodate the needs of EMS.

Hands on Learning Center: The Positive Effect of Negative Pressure

Brent Parquette, NREMT-P, Training and Quality Assurance Manager, Lucas County EMS, Ohio, will discuss the benefits of the ResQCPR System during cardiac arrest followed by a hands-on opportunity to try ResQCPR. A session will be offered at 11:30 a.m. and another at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, February 24 in the Hands on Learning Center.
