ZOLL Medical Corporation Announces New ResQCPR System

ZOLL Medical Corporation announced that its new ResQCPR™ System, which offers new hope for survival from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), is now available nationwide. Instances of the ResQCPR System helping to save lives are already being reported by early adopters of the technology. The ResQCPR System is a combination of two medical devices, the ResQPUMP® ACD-CPR device and the ResQPOD® Impedance Threshold Device (ITD). The devices are used together during CPR to create an enhanced vacuum in the chest that improves blood flow to the brain and vital organs during states of low blood flow such as cardiac arrest. The device combination was shown in a large clinical trial to improve survival to one year from out-of-hospital, non-traumatic cardiac arrest by 49% when compared to treatment with conventional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).According to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the ResQCPR System is the first and only CPR device indicated to improve the likelihood of survival in adults who have experienced non-traumatic sudden cardiac arrest.
