January 30, 2014—CHELMSFORD, MASS.—ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, will showcase the AutoPulse®, data-driven solutions, and advanced CPR technologies in booth #1137 at EMS Today February 6-8 in Washington, D.C.  

Mechanical CPR at Any Angle with the AutoPulse

Attendees will have the opportunity to experience the ease of extricating patients with the AutoPulse Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump by moving a patient through a course of stairs and tight spaces, while the AutoPulse performs continuous compressions.

The AoPulse is the only mechanical CPR system to have shown improved survival in comparative clinical trials1. The AutoPulse more than tripled survival compared to typical CPR during witnessed shockable arrests.

Advancing Care with Data-driven Solutions

Data-based decision making is fundamental to every aspect of EMS operations. And the use of data products drives the quality and outcome of patient care.

ZOLL’s RescueNet® Suite for EMS and Fire is the only fully integrated information management system that touches the entire Chain of Survival with the ability to improve clinical and operational performance. It does this by collecting and analyzing data across EMS or Fire organizations, including medical device data. Key data-driven solutions on display from ZOLL include:

  • RescueNet Dispatch for improved first response coordination using historical data and electronic communication
  • RescueNet ePCR and RecueNet Link for patient care documentation, quality assurance, and data transfer to expedite care 
  • RescueNet Billing for quick and accurate reimbursement of services
  • RescueNet 12-Lead for sending and receiving12-lead transmissions from any number of defibrillators and EMS services at no cost to the sender or receiver 
  • Road Safety® for modifying driver behavior to improve safety and reduce vehicle maintenance costs
  • Insight Analytics for benchmarking and measuring performance to see where improvements can be made

Unsurpassed CPR Support

ZOLL’s breakthrough CPR technologies have been shown to improve survival-to-hospital discharge and achieve favorable neurological outcomes when used in conjunction with a structured training program.2 This real-time CPR feassures rescuers that their chest compressions are deep enough and fast enough to be effective.

ZOLL is so committed to improving manual CPR that Real CPR Help® is included in every defibrillator the company builds for EMS and all ZOLL AEDs—the X Series®, the E Series®, the AED Plus®, the new Fully Automatic AED Plus, and the AED Pro®.

ZOLL’s X Series and E Series Monitor/Defibrillators with their advanced capabilities, along with the AED Pro, also offer See-Thru CPR®, a filtered ECG that minimizes the duration of pauses in CPR to enable rescuers to see the underlying rhythm.

ZOLL Lunch and Learn: “A Paradigm Shift in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation”

In the past, many professional rescuers viewed CPR as an almost futile effort. No more. Thanks to evidence-based changes in CPR delivery and new technology, the power of good CPR has been proven. John Tobin, former EMS captain at the Mesa Fire/Medical Department, has seen it firsthand. He will share how incorporating ZOLL’s CPR Dashboard™ into their training has more than doubled the likelihood of survival to discharge in Mesa. Attendees will learn methods they can take back to their organizations to make this culture shift. The session will be held Friday, February 7 at noon in Salon A, street level, at the convention center.
