October 10, 2019—CHELMSFORD, MASS.— ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, today announced that ZOLL's emergency care equipment and supplies will be on hand to support the medical team at the 2019 Vega IRONMAN® World Championship taking place on Saturday, October 12 in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

Two ZOLL X Series® monitor/defibrillators, four Propaq® M monitors, two ZOLL AED 3® BLS and 10 ZOLL AED Plus® automated external defibrillators, and supplies will be available to the medical team should medical treatment be necessary.

All ZOLL 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 The X Series also offers See-Thru CPR®, ZOLL's proprietary technology, which minimizes the duration of pauses in CPR by enabling rescuers to see whether an organized underlying rhythm is developing. Weighing under 12 pounds, the X Series is full-featured and is the optimal device for transporting critically ill patients. Having ZOLL monitors and defibrillators to quickly assess and treat athletes provides the medical team the tools they need in the event of a life-threatening emergency.
