Acute Critical Care

Our acute critical care business is based on world-leading resuscitation technology. Through our ZOLL family of products, we offer a comprehensive product portfolio that includes professional defibrillators and automated external defibrillators (AEDs), as well as a wearable defibrillator, portable ventilators, a highly efficient intravascular system for managing the core temperature of critically ill patients, and data management systems for care providers. We continue to expand operations in the field of acute critical care to enable better outcomes for more patients around the world.

Operating company

Wearable defibrillator

Our LifeVest™ Wearable Defibrillator is worn by patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), providing protection during their changing condition and while permanent SCA risk has not been established. The LifeVest allows a physician time to assess the patient’s long-term arrhythmic risk and make appropriate plans. The LifeVest is lightweight and easy to wear, enabling patients to return to their activities of daily living, while having the peace of mind that they are protected from SCA. The LifeVest continuously monitors the patient’s heart and, if a life-threatening heart rhythm is detected, the device delivers a treatment shock to restore normal heart rhythm.

Defibrillators

Our clinically advanced defibrillators are used in hospitals and by emergency medical services teams to treat victims of sudden cardiac arrest, while our automated external defibrillators (AEDs) can be found in schools, health clubs, businesses, and many other locations. Not every patient will need a defibrillating shock, but virtually all will require cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), so all ZOLL AEDs, and every professional defibrillator we build, have Real CPR Help™, real-time audiovisual feedback to help rescuers reach the proper depth and rate of chest compressions.

Temperature management system

Targeted temperature management is associated with improved survival in critically ill and surgical patients. ZOLL’s Thermogard XP™ system uses Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM™) technology to cool and warm from the core. IVTM offers superior performance over surface cooling methods in reaching and maintaining target temperature, enabling nursing staff to manage the core body temperature of patients easily. Business is expanding from North America and Europe to include Japan and other markets in Asia.

Data solutions

We offer a comprehensive set of pre-hospital and hospital data management systems. Fire and emergency medical services personnel use the ZOLL RescueNet™ suite of software to manage nearly every aspect of their operations, from dispatching and tracking emergency vehicles to transmitting critical patient data from the back of the ambulance to the hospital. Then once the call is over, our software simplifies billing and collections.
