26 November 2013 - Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust recently invested in the ZOLL R Series® Monitors/Defibrillators for the Worcestershire Royal Hospital in Worcester.

Staff at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital are excited about the new lifesaving machines, which have been introduced onto each ward and will enable them to provide even better treatment to patients. The R Series was chosen due to the Real CPR Help® technology that is built into the electrodes. Real CPR Help analyses the CPR performance of the rescuer and provides visual and audio prompts to help them achieve the correct depth and rate of chest compressions.

Chris Doughty, Senior Resuscitation Officer at Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust, said “We know that CPR is lifesaving and good-quality CPR even more so. The new defibrillators provide us with immediate feedback on the quality of CPR, which means we can give patients the very best care.”

ZOLL AED Pro® defibrillators have also been installed in the reception and waiting areas to ensure rapid response to sudden cardiac arrest throughout the hospital.
