Zoll Introduces New R Series Wireless Capability, Defibrillator Dashboard, 12-Lead Transmission

November 17, 2008 - ZOLL Medical Corp. debuted two new models of its R Series Code-Ready defibrillator for hospitals Nov. 9-11 at the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions 2008 in New Orleans.

The new R Series BLS and R Series Plus are designed to extend simple, smart and ready defibrillation to every hospital department with advanced, cost-effective solutions for resuscitation. The R Series BLS is a simple, easy-to-use AED that becomes a full-featured, advanced life support device for critical care at the touch of a button, the company said. The R Series Plus, which also has both AED and ALS capabilities at the touch of a button, also has networking capabilities and See-Thru CPR. Like all other ZOLL defibrillators, the models provide the Real CPR Help feature. Both the BLS and Plus models are 510(k) pending.

The original R Series ALS, launched in November 2006, and these two new models, all use the same uniform operating system common to ZOLL defibrillators. The cables, paddles, batteries, handles and electrodes are also common to ensure clinicians won't encounter a mismatch in a time of crisis, Zoll said.

All R Series models incorporate wireless networking to ensure code-readiness. Based on standard 802.116 WiFi technology, the R Series automatically sends an alert when its state of readiness is compromised. Early notification maximizes patient safety by letting the clinician intervene before the defibrillator is needed for a code.

Also debuting at AHA was the Defibrillator Dashboard, an automated, online system for ensuring code-readiness. Since defibrillators are widely distributed throughout the hospital, and their use is both infrequent and extremely critical, this unique management tool helps clinical engineers manage a pool of defibrillators throughout a facility. This support capability offers tools for maximizing defibrillator readiness and reduces the total cost of ownership, including the most costly aspect - battery management, the company said.

A new wireless 12-lead transmission option for the E Series defibrillator/monitor was also previewed at AHA. This transmission option is easy-to-use, cost-effective and an integrated part of ZOLL's end-to-end resuscitation data management and communications system. The E Series wireless option is pending 510(k) approval.
