ZOLL Medical Corp.’s (ZOLL) AutoPulse® Units Installed for the First Time in Canadian Hospital

ZOLL Medical Corporation (ZOLL) develops technologies that help advance the practice of resuscitation. The company provides products for pacing, defibrillation, circulation, ventilation, and fluid resuscitation, such as its Real CPR Help and See-Thru CPR®, which helps clinicians, EMS professionals, and lay rescuers resuscitate cardiac arrest or trauma victims. ZOLL, based in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, markets and sells its products in more than 140 countries, and has direct operations, distributor networks and business partners throughout the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Asia, and Australia.

ZOLL’s AutoPulse® Non-Invasive Cardiac Support Pump has been installed for the first time at the Hôtel-Dieu Grace Hospital (HDGH) in Windsor, Ontario in Canada. Hôtel-Dieu Grace Hospital, located in Canada’s southernmost city and just across the river from Detroit, Michigan, is the region’s premier tertiary acute care hospital. HDGH operates 278 patient beds and cares for over 11,000 inpatients annually.

The major cardiac and trauma center, which was also the first hospital in Canada to place AEDs in nursing units, has two AutoPulse units available in the facility’s critical care unit and emergency room, and a third device as a back-up. Auto-Pulse helps provide the consistent chest compressions called for by the 2005 American Heart Associates Guidelines followed by Canada. Health Canada, the equivalent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, approved the AutoPulse for use in Canada in November 2003. Currently, it is in use by several EMS agencies in the country.
