AED Plus Automated External Defibrillator by ZOLL Medical Corporation
When it’s time for CPR, the AED Plus Automated External Defibrillator with Real CPR Help by ZOLL provides the best support to help save a life.
When sudden cardiac arrest occurs, the fact is that only half of the victims will need a shock, however all will require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). For most, performing CPR will be a rare and stressful experience. With the AED Plus defib, users are provided with real-time feedback for quality, depth and rate of chest compressions; providing confidence and clarity throughout.
Once installed, the ZOLL AED Plus has the lowest total cost of ownership compared to other automated external defibrillators on the market. Longer-lasting batteries and pads mean fewer replacement parts, adding up to considerable cost savings over time and rescue readiness in a cardiac arrest emergency.
The latest American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines, issued in 2010, are clear: successful defibrillation requires high-quality CPR performed at the proper depth and rate. Whether a shock is advised or not, rescuers should focus on delivering compressions correctly; as only good CPR can restore the heart rhythm to one required for a shock to work.
The AED Plus offers a range of features, enabling the best possible outcome, no matter the level of experience.
- Measures chest compressions with Real CPR Help technology
- Back-lit display with audio visual prompts
- One-size fits all one-piece electrode pads to simplify placement
- Five-year shelf life
- Ruggedised case for industrial environments
- Comprehensive training kits for on-site staff education
The AHA Guidelines recommend that rescuers push hard to a depth of at least 5 centimeters at a rate of 100 compressions per minute. This is easier said than done.
The AED Plus removes any guess-work during the administration of CPR with the addition of Real CPR Help technology - providing the best support for saving a life.
Pad sensors allow the AED see each chest compression; providing instant feedback to the user. It provides continual guidance throughout the CPR process, with prompts and a real-time bar gauge to indicate the recommended depth and rate of compressions.
- One-piece CPR-D-padz contain a pair of electrodes, which sense and report the motion of chest compressions
- Audio and text prompts relay compression quality
- Compression depth bar gauge displays the depth of each compression in real-time
- Adaptive metronome detects compression rate and guides to at least 100 per minute
Affixing two separate electrode pads to the patient’s bare chest can be confusing to a lay rescuer. ZOLL’s CPR-D-padz simplify this step by guiding placement of the red crosshairs at the center of the imaginary line connecting the patient’s nipples. Once in place, the hand-locator and the two electrode pads fall naturally into optimal position for both defibrillation and CPR.
CPR-D-padz come complete with rescue essentials, including a barrier mask, a razor, scissors, disposable gloves, and a towelette.
ZOLL’s clever one-piece electrode design accounts for anatomical variation.
Based on extensive human data, CPR-D-padz meet the anthropometric chest characteristics of 99% of the population. If needed, the lower (apex) electrode can be separated and adjusted to accommodate the remaining 1% of the population.
Pedi-padz are also available; designed for patients under the age of 8, or individuals under 25kg. The AED Plus will sense when paediatric electrodes are attached and will switch from an adult to a paediatric ECG analysis algorithm.
All AED electrodes transmit defibrillating electricity into the patient via metal in close contact with a salt-infused gel that is positioned between the metal and the skin. Over time, however, the salt in the gel will corrode the metal and eventually compromise electrode functionality.
ZOLL’s unique electrode design includes a sacrificial element that prevents significant corrosion for five years, which is unmatched in the market today.
Choose from a range of mounting and storage options available, including steel and clear wall cabinets and aluminium wall brackets.
Soft and hard carry cases are also available; allowing quick and easy transport of the AED Plus in times of need.
The ZOLL Training Kit allows site instructors to provide their team with the ultimate hands-on experience when it comes to learning how to operate the AED Plus and perform CPR.
Choose from four different fixed rescue scenarios or maintain manual control of the entire rescue simulation.
A wireless remote provides control over multiple training kits at any one time.
Additional training pads, replacement adhesive gels and a carry case are all available options.
