ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it will display the LifeVest® Wearable Defibrillator, the AutoPulse® Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump, and ZOLL’s Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM™) solution in booth #429 at the 2013 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting October 29-November 1 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

Following a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure, 1 in 5 post-acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients have been shown to be at high risk of early mortality.1 The majority of mortality in AMI patients post-PCI occurs in the first three months one out of every 10 high risk patients die, with about 60% of this mortality due to sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).1,2 Data has shown that in patients treated by the LifeVest Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator, the median time to shock following revascularization is 14 days.3 Additionally, LifeVest use post-PCI is associated with an 85% reduction in total mortality at 90 days compared to a matched cohort of patients not prescribed the LifeVest.4

The LifeVest is worn by patients at risk for SCA, providing protection during their changing condition and while permanent SCA risk has not been established. It is used to protect a wide range of patient conditions or situations, including following a recent myocardial infarction, or following coronary revascularization.

The LifeVest is lightweight and easy to wear, allowing patients to return to their activities of daily living, while having the peace of mind that they are protected from SCA. The LifeVest continuously monitors the patient’s heart and, if a life-threatening heart rhythm is detected, the device delivers a treatment shock to restore normal heart rhythm.

The LifeVest is covered by most health plans in the United States, including commercial, state, and federal plans.

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 arrests.5 Most recently a meta-analysis of available clinical findings found that the likelihood of circulation returning was 62% higher with use of the AutoPulse when compared to manual compressions while a parallel analysis showed no significant change with a conventional piston-driven device.6

ZOLL’s Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM) solution 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.
