ZOLL AED 3 and ZOLL AED 3 BLS Recognized by World of Safety & Health Asia for Their Innovative Technology for All Rescuers



January 6, 2021 — CHELMSFORD, MASS. — ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, today announced that its ZOLL AED 3® and ZOLL AED 3 BLS automated external defibrillators (AEDs) were recognized by the World of Safety & Health Asia (WSHAsia) in its inaugural New & Innovative Solutions Awards program. As the only products to receive a five-star rating, the ZOLL defibrillators were recognized for their unrivaled smart technology and the industry's shortest interval between compressions and shock delivery.

"We're honored to be recognized by World of Safety & Health Asia for our Real CPR Help® and RapidShock™ technologies. We are committed to delivering life-saving AEDs that enable bystanders and rescuers to act quickly and with confidence in medical emergencies," said Elijah A. White, President of ZOLL Resuscitation. "Research shows that real-time CPR feedback, along with training, more than doubles cardiac arrest survival rates, and we're dedicated to doing our part to deliver advanced CPR feedback technology, ease of use, and reliability to support both professional and lay rescuers through each step of the process."

WSHAsia's New & Innovative Solution Awards recognize excellence in products and services that aim to improve workplace safety and health. The entries were evaluated by a panel of five renowned figures in the safety and health industry from across the Asia Pacific region. A five-star rating denotes an approval from each of the five panel judges.

"We are impressed by the innovative AEDs from ZOLL Medical, with their remarkably short pre-shock pauses between compression cycles, the shortest in the industry," said Raymond Wat, founder of World of Safety & Health Asia. "The ZOLL AED 3 and ZOLL AED 3 BLS were designed with smart technologies that support all rescuers and automated monitoring features with WiFi connectivity to enhance emergency readiness."


The intuitive design and enhanced features of the ZOLL AED 3 defibrillator give unexpected heroes both the confidence and the knowledge needed to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Proven Real CPR Help technology helps rescuers deliver high-quality CPR with real-time, guideline-driven feedback on the quality of chest compressions. It also features a full-color display with vivid rescue images, a CPR cycle timer, and a large color bar gauge that shows CPR compression depth.

The universal design of the CPR Uni-padz® electrodes allows rescuers to treat both adult and pediatric victims of SCA with the same set of pads by simply activating the child mode. WiFi connectivity enables automatic reporting of device status, giving organizations and rescuers confidence the AED is ready to use when needed. It also provides the ability to quickly access and transmit cardiac arrest event data to medical professionals.


The ZOLL AED 3 BLS defibrillator includes all the features of the ZOLL AED 3 defibrillator, but also provides in-depth rescue support for professional rescuers. A CPR Dashboard™ on the device shows elapsed time, CPR cycle countdown, shocks delivered, and ECG. Using RescueNet® CaseReview, detailed rescue performance data can be exported quickly and easily via USB or transferred directly over WiFi. Data can be evaluated and used to improve future responder performance. The ZOLL AED 3 BLS not only guides rescuers in delivering high-quality CPR, but is also one of the fastest AEDs in the industry at delivering a shock after chest compressions stop — two critical components to increasing a victim's chance of survival.


The ZOLL AED 3 and ZOLL AED 3 BLS defibrillators both include ZOLL's RapidShock Analysis technology, with the industry's shortest pause for analysis and the fastest time to shock. It can analyze a patient's heart rhythm in three seconds, followed by delivery of the shock in as little as five seconds.
