Zoll Medical is a trailblazer in the AED medical device industry by incorporating within the Zoll AED Plus the real-time and accurate CPR coaching that successfully brings a victim back to life with minimal to no damage. When a patient’s heart stops beating during a sudden cardiac arrest, they require both CPR and an automated external defibrillator. Fast response (CPR) and treatment (AED) is the magic life-saving one-two punch. Zoll was the first to deliver this AED/CPR feature in 2002 in the form of real-time CPR coaching through an audible and display visible coach assessing the rescuer’s CPR delivery. The expert CPR Coach will instruct the rescuer to “Push Harder” if the CPR is sub-par, or will reassure the rescuer that they are delivering “good compressions”.

Zoll AED Plus Features:
Initially, what you notice about the Zoll AED Plus is its bright green color which can help the public identify this medical device quickly. The AED is available in semi-automatic and fully-automatic configuration.
Once this AED is opened the real CPR Help® function is initiated, correct CPR is delivered. 100% of sudden cardiac arrest victims need real CPR, and about 50% of these SCA’s will require the shock from the AED. Zoll has been at the forefront of identifying and developing an AED that can perform both of these necessary steps in a life-threatening emergency. The ingenious real CPR Help® capability has illuminated the important need for real CPR versus CPR that the general public or even a trained responder may deliver. The Zoll AED Plus CPR Coaching tool enables the patient to receive the optimal level of CPR through the automation of the AED.
The one-piece electrode (CPR-D PADZ) is placed in the middle of the victim’s chest and is the method that converts chest compression data, letting the rescuer know both audibly and through the display screen whether CPR is being delivered effectively. The CPR-D PADZ is a one-piece design that comes with an accessory package providing tools that may be required, including scissors. Adult SCA victims need at least 100 compressions per minute, but additionally, the depth of those compressions must be at least 2 inches deep. While the AED is assessing whether a shock is required, correct CPR keeps the victim’s blood and oxygen moving.
Cost-Effective and easy to track maintenance:
Both the batteries and CPR D PADZ have a 5-year tracking life which makes this AED extremely cost-effective and low maintenance. The Zoll AED Plus uses long-lasting lithium batteries that are affordable and can either be ordered through aed.us or purchased through a retail store. Batteries can last up to 5 years in standby mode if the AED is stored properly. The CPR-D PADZ has a fixed 5-year expiration date to track (once it is used, it must be replaced and the 5-year term begins again), making this one of the easier to manage and maintain AEDs on the market.
The green check on the AED confirms that the AED has successfully completed its internal self-tests and is rescue-ready.

Maintenance and Management for your Zoll AED Plus:
All AEDs require regular maintenance and management to ensure that the AED will perform during a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). The electrodes and batteries must be tracked for expiration dates and replacement. Your organization should have one person in charge of this very important task and be able to access records demonstrating maintenance and oversight.
