ZOLL Medical Corp.’s (ZOLL) AED Plus Selected for Installation in Beijing Capital International Airport

ZOLL Medical Corporation (ZOLL) recently announced that the Beijing Airport Group has selected the ZOLL AED Plus® for installation in the Beijing International Airport’s newly-built Terminal 3, the largest single airport building in the world. The Beijing International Airport AED project is the first large, public AED deployment project in China. The project marks a milestone for public access defibrillators in the country. Before this project, 15 AED Plus units were deployed in Terminal 2 in 2007, setting a new standard for public safety devices in China.

The ZOLL AED Plus is the first and only full-rescue AED that provides Real CRP Help® for rate and depth of chest compressions. It guides rescuers through the complete “chain of survival”, a cardiac arrest protocol, and helps all sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) victims, not just those who need shock treatment. SCA, an abrupt disruption of the heart’s function, is the leading cause of unexpected death in the world, striking 1 million humans worldwide and without warning.

Plans call for the installation of 80 AED Plus units at Terminal 3, the gateway terminal for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics. As part of the project, the AED Plus will also be installed in several other major airports in China, including Taiyuan and Wuhan Airports. The ZOLL AED Plus is also being deployed in the airport ambulances and emergency centers. Beijing Airport Group plans to rapidly expand its AED installed base to about 500 units.
