ACC: Zoll Displaying R Series, LifeVest

 

March 23, 2007

The ZOLL R Series is a Code-Ready device that is simple, smart and ready to use. It offers a one step system to simplify and speed up deployment of pacing and defibrillation therapy. It also offers smart tools to help clinicians improve CPR performance, which is important since more than half of in-hospital codes involve non-shockable rhythms and, in such cases, the only treatment is high-quality CPR with minimal interruptions.

The LifeVest is worn by patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), and it provides constant monitoring, immediate protection and peace of mind. The LifeVest monitors the heart constantly and records patient data to help diagnose and treat life-threatening arrhythmias. When it detects a treatable arrhythmia, an alarm sounds, giving a conscious patient time to stop the treatment. This is a key difference between the LifeVest and an implanted defibrillator.
