Advanced defibrillators win five-star safety award
Earlier this year, ZOLL Medical Corporation, a company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, was recognised by the World of Safety & Health Asia (WSHAsia) in its inaugural New & Innovative Solutions Awards program. ZOLL was recognised for its ZOLL AED 3 and ZOLL AED 3 BLS automated external defibrillators (AEDs); as the only products to receive a five-star rating, the defibrillators were recognised for their smart technology and short interval between compressions and shock delivery.
Elijah A White, President of ZOLL Resuscitation, said the company is committed to delivering live-saving AEDs that enable bystanders and rescuers to act quickly and with confidence in medical emergencies. “We’re honoured to be recognised by World of Safety & Health Asia for our Real CPR Help and RapidShock technologies. Research shows that real-time CPR feedback, along with training, more than doubles cardiac arrest survival rates, and we’re dedicated to doing our part to deliver advanced CPR feedback technology, ease of use and reliability to support both professional and lay rescuers through each step of the process,” said White.
The New & Innovative Solution Awards recognise excellence in products and services that aim to improve workplace safety and health. A panel of five renowned figures in the safety and health industry from across the Asia–Pacific region evaluated the entries, with a five-star rating indicating approval from each of the five judges. The ZOLL AED 3 and AED 3 BLS defibrillators both include ZOLL’s RapidShock Analysis technology, with short pauses for analysis and fast time to shock. It can analyse a patient’s heart rhythm in three seconds, followed by delivery of the shock in as little as five seconds.
The intuitive design and enhanced features of the ZOLL AED 3 defibrillator give users the confidence and knowledge needed to treat sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Real CPR Help technology helps rescuers deliver high-quality CPR with real-time, guideline-driven feedback on the quality of chest compressions. The ZOLL AED 3 also features full-colour display with vivid rescue images, a CPR cycle timer and a large colour bar gauge that shows CPR compression depth. The universal design of the CPR Uni-padz electrodes on the ZOLL AED 3 allows rescuers to treat adult and paediatric victims of SCA with the same set of pads by activating the child mode. Wi-Fi connectivity enables automatic reporting of device status, enabling organisations and rescuers to know the AED is ready for use. It also provides the ability to access and transmit cardiac arrest event data to medical professionals.
The ZOLL AED 3 BLS defibrillator includes all the features of the ZOLL AED 3 defibrillator, but also provides in-depth rescue support for professional rescuers. A CPR dashboard on the device shows elapsed time, CPR cycle countdown, shocks delivered and ECD. RescueNet CaseReview enables rescue performance data to be exported via USB or transferred directly over Wi-Fi. Data can be evaluated and used to improve future responder performance. The ZOLL AED 3 BLS guides rescuers in delivering high-quality CPR and is designed to be one of the fastest AEDs in the industry at delivering a shock after chest compressions stop — two critical components to increasing a victim’s chance of survival.
Raymond Watt, founder of World of Safety & Health Asia, said the ZOLL AED 3 and ZOLL AED 3 BLS were designed with smart technologies that support all rescuers and automated monitoring features with Wi-Fi connectivity to enhance emergency readiness. “We are impressed by the innovative AEDs from ZOLL Medical, with their remarkably short pre-shock pauses between compression cycles: the shortest in the industry,” said Watt.
