ZOLL SHOWCASES SYSTEMS OF CARE PRODUCTS AT EMS TODAY 2018

February 15, 2018—CHELMSFORD, MASS.—ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, will offer EMS Today 2018 attendees the opportunity to experience the company’s portfolio of advanced CPR and acute critical care technologies, along with its integrated data solutions, in booth 904 on February 21-23 at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina.

The products making up one-of-a-kind systems of care from ZOLL to be exhibited at EMS Today include:

Pediatric CPR on the X Series

ZOLL’s X Series® is the only monitor/defibrillator on the market that offers pediatric CPR feedback. Recent studies have determined that the quality of CPR in children is poor, with compressions frequently too shallow.1 While many providers are often hesitant to compress to the appropriate depth in pediatric cardiac arrest because they feel they might “hurt” the patient, ZOLL’s real-time pediatric CPR feedback arms providers with the information and confidence necessary to deliver high-quality CPR.

Resuscitation on the Move

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience moving patients in cardiac arrest using the AutoPulse® Resuscitation System. Participants will experience how quickly the AutoPulse can be deployed using the new Quick Case, which allows EMS providers to continue providing high-quality CPR while moving patients around tight corners and down steep stairs. Designed for Resuscitation on the Move™, a recent study showed that the AutoPulse had a significant survival benefit when compared to manual CPR when resuscitation efforts lasted longer than 16 minutes.2 In a meta-analysis of 12 comparative clinical trials, the AutoPulse improved the odds of return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) by 62% when compared to manual CPR.3

ResQCPR System

Also on display will be the ResQCPR™ System, which utilizes active compression-decompression CPR (ACD-CPR) and an impedance threshold device (ITD) to improve blood flow to vital organs and increase the likelihood that patients will survive sudden cardiac arrest.4,5 The two-device combination was shown in a large clinical trial to improve survival to one year from out-of-hospital, non-traumatic cardiac arrest by 49% when compared to treatment with conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).5

Respiratory Care—Launching New Capabilities

With ZOLL’s EMV+® Ventilator, participants will have a unique experience by witnessing how a patient’s lungs adapt to different ventilator modes used in the pre-hospital environment. With ZOLL’s unique Smart HelpTM technology, the ZOLL ventilator provides on-screen prompts to guide users through alarm resolution. With a simple Touch, Turn & Confirm interface, a rugged design weighing just 9.7 lbs. and including a 10-hour battery, the ZOLL ventilator is designed to accommodate the specific needs of EMS.

ZOLL will also showcase new additional capabilities in the EMV+ that include inverse I:E ratio as well as plateau pressure measurement, allowing the EMS community to provide more tailored patient care for high-acuity patients such as those with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).

The RescueNet Journey

The ZOLL RescueNet® Experience shows attendees the journey of patient data from dispatch through discharge. When EMS software solutions are truly integrated, critical incident and patient data follow the patient from dispatch all the way through to post-event billing, saving EMS agencies both time and money. New is RescueNet BillingPro, which allows agencies to capture more revenue per claim, process clean claims faster, and focus on processes with the greatest return on investment.
