hen someone is suffering from a cardiac arrest, time is crucial, and having a defibrillator in the community means lifesaving assistance can be given before paramedics arrive on the scene, saving lives and preventing brain damage. And thanks to its WiFi connectivity, you can rely on it to always be ready for use as the unit will email you should it find a fault during one of its regular self-tests.
Giving spoken instructions alongside visual aids displayed on the high-resolution colour touchscreen which are easy-to-follow and guide the user, step-by-step, so they can give high-quality lifesaving assistance.
Just How Easy Is It?
The ZOLL AED 3 guides you through the entire chain of survival, giving clear instructions at every stage. This starts at checking for a response and calling for an ambulance, opening airways and checking for breathing, attaching the electrode pads to the bare chest, administering the shock, then starting and continuing CPR.
The defibrillator contains everything you need to effectively resuscitate someone who is experiencing a cardiac arrest. The first responder kit includes scissors to cut away the clothes and a razor to shave the chest before applying the pads, along with a CPR face shield, wipes, towelette and gloves. Plus, it has long-life batteries for a 5-year life in standby mode and universal electrode pads with a 5-year shelf life which are suitable for use on adults and children.
Once the pads are stuck to the patient, the defibrillator unit will analyze the patient to determine whether a shock is advisable, and if it is, you will be prompted to press the button which gives the shock. With RapidShock Analysis and a quick charge time, the pause will be brief for a quicker response which could give a better outcome.
After this, you’ll then be guided through giving CPR until the paramedics arrive. When they do, the USB port allows them to quickly collect and assess the data to give appropriate care quickly.
How Does It Compare?
Unique as it features Real CPR Help, this works in two ways. The first is by beeping at the rhythm which you should be doing to the compressions to achieve 100 per minute. The second is that the LED display gives real-time feedback of the compressions, and shows whether you need to push harder.
With batteries and pads which have a 5-year lifespan, the ZOLL AED Plus defibrillator is a smart investment with the lowest total cost of ownership. Others can require new pads as frequent as every 18 months.
Additionally, the WiFi connection means you can easily manage a whole suite of devices, in different locations, using the ZOLL Programme Management solution so you can keep every unit in good working order and prepared for an emergency.
Who Are ZOLL?
Founded by Paul Zoll, M.D. he was the inventor of heart pacemaker technology and the first person to externally defibrillate a heart in the 1950s. Now, many Ambulance Trusts across the UK have kitted out their vehicles with defibrillators manufactured by ZOLL.
Made in Boston, USA, each unit is individually tested before they are distributed, and each unit undertakes an automatic self-test to ensure it is always in a constant state of readiness in case it is required. All ZOLL defibrillators are approved by the European Resuscitation Council (ERC), NRR, and BRC Guidelines and have a 6-year warranty.
For replacement universal pads for your ZOLL AED 3, you will require the CPR Uni-Padz.
