ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei Group Company, has introduced the X Series® Advanced

ZOLL’s new X Series Advanced monitor/defibrillator helps emergency care providers manage patients more effectively, being the first device of its kind to provide the clinical information needed to improve outcomes for patients across multiple disease states.

The X Series Advanced includes two new technologies:

• Real BVM HelpTM provides clinicians with real-time feedback on both volume and rate of bag valve mask (BVM) ventilations for intubated or non-intubated patients. A ventilation quality indicator and countdown timer guide rescuers to deliver high-quality ventilations and reduce hyperventilation.

• TBI Dashboard™ allows emergency care providers to effectively manage traumatic brain injury (TBI) by providing a dashboard with trending data on the parameters most critical to TBI patients.

“Our mission is to develop and introduce meaningful technologies that help medical professionals and lay rescuers save more lives,” said Elijah A. White, President of ZOLL Resuscitation.

“With X Series Advanced, we continue this tradition by introducing proprietary Real BVM Help technology and the TBI Dashboard. And with Remote View™ technology, clinicians can view data from the X Series Advanced from a remote location.

“The feedback provided by the X Series Advanced is a natural extension of our existing range of feedback technologies, which also includes Real CPR Help®,” White concluded.

The X Series Advanced is currently available in select countries and is pending FDA premarket approval in the U.S. and Health Canada License in Canada.
