June 12, 2014—A ZOLL X Series® Monitor/Defibrillator accompanied 51 World War II and Korean War veterans from southern Nevada on their Honor Flight to Washington, D.C., recently.

Dennis Nolan, a paramedic and former Nevada state senator, provided medical supervision on the trip. The X Series was available to check the vets’ heart rate, pulse, oxygenation, carbon dioxide, blood pressure, and temperature.

"The vets ranged in age from 84 to 97, and many of them were in wheel chairs,” said Nolan. “With the X Series, we were able to provide a quick and reliable assessment of their condition in 3 to 4 minutes. And it was compact and easy to carry around as they toured the war memorials.”


The Honor Flight program provides trips to the memorials in the U.S. Capitol for veterans who may not have the finances to travel or who may not be healthy enough to travel unassisted.
