Whether the patient is a tiny child or a giant adult, SONARIS will measure their height, regardless of size, covering a greater height range than any conventional height measuring instruments.

ZOLL REAL CPR HELP, INCREASING THE ODDS FOR SURVIVAL

By CME on Nov 30, 2017 7:00:00 AM

CPR Saves Lives. That’s why more than 30 states now require students to receive CPR training before they graduate from high school. Many of these states also require that students be trained to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

CPR + AED = even more lives saved.

The evidence is indisputable: high-quality CPR is the primary component in influencing survival from cardiac arrest.1 Not every patient will need a defibrillating shock, but every patient will need CPR to increase the flow of oxygenated blood to the heart and brain. More lives saved.

Even for seasoned health care professionals, it’s hard to know if you are pushing hard enough and fast enough to meet current AHA Guidelines for compression rate and depth. With ZOLL'S proprietary Real CPR Help technology, you know. It provides audio and visual feedback that guides rescuers to deliver high-quality CPR. ZOLL introduced Real CPR Help® in 2002, and it is standard on every AED and professional defibrillator ZOLL sells.

See Real CPR Help in action in this online demo.

There is a growing need for small medical-grade refrigerators within hospital systems and the entire healthcare community. Whether it is to save space, increase safety, improve the clinicians’ workflow, or simply for convenience, a more reliable medical-grade refrigerator was needed. The standard of care, for bedside refrigeration has been slowed, due to limited choices and reliability problems from past undercounter refrigerators. Standard small door size models receive constant complaints of being too noisy, having temperature consistency and/or recovery problems, plus infectious control burdens. Finally, Creche Innovations has developed (and continues to improve) the absolute best solution for all small storage medical refrigeration needs, with the MicroCool® Refrigeration System.
