ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of resuscitation devices and related software solutions, today announced that it will display its fully integrated advanced resuscitation and data management solutions and temperature management systems in booth #517 at the 2013 Emergency Nurses Association (ENA) Annual Conference September 17-19 in Nashville.
Product highlights among ZOLL’s hospital portfolio include the R Series® Code-Ready® family of monitor/defibrillators for hospitals, the X Series® Monitor/Defibrillators for critical care patient transport, the new OneStep™ Pediatric CPR Electrodes, the AutoPulse® Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump, and the company’s Intravascular Temperature Management System.
Unsurpassed CPR Support
ZOLL’s breakthrough CPR technologies, in combination with scenario-based training, have been shown to improve survival-to-hospital discharge and achieve favorable neurological outcomes1. As a result of ZOLL’s focus on high-quality CPR, virtually all of the company’s defibrillators feature auditory and visual Real CPR Help®. This real-time CPR feedback technology reassures rescuers that their chest compressions are deep enough and fast enough to be effective.
The ZOLL R Series and X Series defibrillators also offer See-Thru CPR®, a breakthrough technology that filters out CPR artifact from the ECG to help rescuers minimize the duration of CPR interruptions.
The ZOLL R Series features exclusive technology that sets a new standard for simplicity and operational readiness for in-hospital resuscitation efforts. The compact X Series rises to a new standard in ruggedness and durability at a low weight of only 12 pounds, with no compromise in display size, capability, or performance.
The AutoPulse is an automated, portable chest compression device. It is the only mechanical CPR system to have shown improved survival in comparative clinical trials. The AutoPulse more than tripled survival compared to typical CPR during witnessed shockable arrests2.
First-of-its-kind Pediatric CPR Electrodes
OneStep™ Pediatric CPR Electrodes are the only electrodes on the market with a built-in sensor that reports CPR quality on children up to 8 years of age. This first-of-its-kind electrode provides optimal support for pediatric resuscitation when paired with the ZOLL R Series Monitor/Defibrillator and its CPR Dashboard™.
The R Series offers the most extensive pediatric capabilities available in a professional defibrillator with pediatric support. The OneStep CPR Pediatric Electrodes can be used for monitoring, pacing, and defibrillation, as well as CPR.
Precise and Rapid Control of Core Temperature
Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM™) technology offers health care providers the power and control they need to rapidly, safely, and effectively manage the core body temperature of critically ill or surgical patients. The Thermogard XP® delivers accurate, easy-to-use and cost-effective control for both cooling and warming applications.
Additional products on display at ENA include:
For data management, the CodeNet® Resuscitation Data Management System documents events as they occur, capturing data that can easily be printed or scanned and uploaded to an Electronic Medical Record (EMR).
The palm-sized PocketCPR® is a light, portable device that measures and provides real-time feedback on the depth and rate of chest compressions during CPR.
