ZOLL Medical Corporation Key Developments

Baku 2015 Equips European Games with ZOLL AED Plus to Treat Sudden Cardiac Arrest

ZOLL Medical Corporation announced that the Baku 2015 European Games, being held 12-28 June in Baku, Azerbaijan, will be equipped with the ZOLL AED Plus in the event that anyone attending or participating in this inaugural edition of the European Games experiences a sudden cardiac arrest. Eighty AED Plus units will be distributed among the mobile medical teams and be available across all Baku 2015 venues. According to the Operations Committee of the Baku Games, the AED Plus was recommended because of its CPR feedback technology. In addition to providing a shock if needed, the AED Plus features Real CPR Help technology, real-time audio and visual feedback to guide rescuers to the correct depth and rate of chest compression to deliver high-quality CPR and positively impact outcomes.

Opto Circuits Wins $23 Million in a Case Against Zoll

Opto Circuits (India) Ltd. has informed in a filing to BSE that its group company Cardiac Science Corporation has won a long-standing dispute over the company's wearable defibrillator technology. A 12-person jury in Los Angeles Superior Court has unanimously decided in favour of the company's breach of contract claims against Zoll Medical Corporation, and Zoll LifeCor Corporation, awarding Cardiac Science USD 22,991,985 in lost royalties. The dispute relates to the company's patented wearable defibrillator technology. In 2002, LifeCor began marketing its LifeVest product, which infringed a number of Cardiac Science's patents. To avoid infringement claims, LifeCor entered into a cross-license agreement with Cardiac Science and was able to continue selling its device.

ZOLL®Medical Corporation's ResQCPR System Receives Premarket Approval from FDA

ZOLL®Medical Corporation announced that the company’s ResQCPR System has been granted premarket approval (PMA) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market and begin U.S. distribution of the CPR adjunct system. The technology, which has been shown to improve the likelihood of survival in adult patients with non-traumatic cardiac arrest, is expected to be commercially available in mid-2015. A pivotal study evaluating the ResQCPR System, known as the ResQTRIAL, which the FDA considered in its approval process, demonstrated a 49% increase in survival to one year in adult patients who experienced out-of-hospital cardiac arrest of presumed cardiac etiology, as compared to treatment with conventional manual CPR. If widely implemented, the ResQCPR System could save thousands of lives each year in the U.S. from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest alone, based on these study results. The ResQCPR System uses Intrathoracic Pressure Regulation (IPR), a proprietary, non-invasive therapy developed by Advanced Circulatory Systems Inc. of Roseville, Minn., which ZOLL acquired in January 2015. This innovative technology uses the body’s own mechanisms to enhance circulation without the use of pharmaceutical or other agents. The ResQCPR System is comprised of the ResQPOD® Impedance Threshold Device and the ResQPUMP® Active Compression-Decompression CPR Device, which work synergistically to improve perfusion.
