ZOLL® Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it will display its portfolio of clinical resuscitation products including the LifeVest® Wearable Defibrillator, along with sudden cardiac death (SCD) education and screening tools, in Booth #947 at Heart Rhythm 2015, the Heart Rhythm Society’s 36th Annual Scientific Sessions, May 13-16 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

The LifeVest will be discussed during the following scientific sessions:

• Pasquale Santangeli, MD, University of Pennsylvania, will present “Usage of a Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator in Patients with Advanced Heart Failure,” Friday, May 15, 3:15-4:15 pm., EPicenter, Exhibit Hall, Poster #PO0542.
• Chingping Wan, MD, ZOLL, will present “One-year Outcome for Medicare Beneficiaries with AMI Using a WCD,” Friday, May 15, 3:15-4:15 pm., EPicenter, Exhibit Hall, Poster #PO0558.

The LifeVest protects patients at risk for SCD. It is used for a wide range of patient conditions or situations, including following a myocardial infarction, before or after coronary revascularization, and for those with cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure that places them at particular risk. The LifeVest gives physicians time to optimize medical therapy and assess a patient’s long-term risk for sudden death.

In the WEARIT-II prospective registry of 2,000 patients prescribed the LifeVest, the sustained VT/VF event rate was high with 22 events per 100 patient-years 2.1% of patients had a VT/VF event.1 One in 14 patients experienced a clinically meaningful arrhythmia requiring intervention while wearing the LifeVest.1 The LifeVest Network Online Patient Data Management System provides customizable tools for physicians and clinicians to access these captured arrhythmias, like atrial fibrillation or non-sustained ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and determine the appropriate intervention.

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 SCD. 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.

Additional products on display from ZOLL include:

• The AutoPulse® Resuscitation System provides consistent, high-quality CPR to victims of sudden cardiac arrest. Easy to use and battery operated, its load-distributing LifeBand® squeezes the patient’s entire chest to improve blood flow to the heart and brain. The only device of its kind, AutoPulse automatically sizes to the patient, and has shown improved survival in numerous clinical trials.2,3
• The R Series® Monitor/Defibrillator is designed to promote consistent, high-quality CPR and high-current defibrillation for adults and pediatrics. Its featured technologies include Real CPR Help® to provide real-time feedback on compression quality, See-Thru CPR® to reduce pause time by filtering the CPR artifact, and EtCO2 to signal the earliest changes in patient condition. ZOLL offers customers more than just a way to deliver a shock. Tools to help improve CPR quality are included, which improves outcomes.4
