Zoll AED Plus – Rugged and Durable
If you work with student-athletes, law enforcement, or are involved with any other outdoor activities such as operating a golf course, you will want to make sure your AED is up for the challenge. You can plan on your AED seeing some abuse when being toted around outside, and you will want it to last. The Zoll AED Plus has one of the highest IP ratings when compared to similar AED devices available, which means you really can’t find a better device for your use. Carrying a rating of IP55 means that it scores very well for dust and water protection. IP stands for ingress protection, and the first number represents its score for dust protection (5 out of a possible 6). The second number represents its protection from water (5 out of a possible 8). This Zoll Defibrillator can stand up to quite a bit of abuse when compared to the average portable AED device.
Zoll AED Plus – Audio/Visual Features
Available in both automatic and semi-automatic shock versions, the Zoll Medical AED Plus has an intuitive display that detects when a shock is needed and counts down to when the shock will occur (in semi-automatic mode, a button press is required to deliver the shock). An audio countdown lets you know when a shock will occur in the event that you are not able to keep an eye on the display.
In the tragic event that a child or infant is in need of resuscitation, there are optional Pedi-Padz II available. These AED pads offer a separate and specific algorithm for infants and children to determine if a shock is necessary.
Real CPR Help ® with CPR D-Padz
When using Zoll CPR D-Padz you gain a huge advantage as a lay responder with Real CPR Help®. Real CPR Help® guides you step-by-step when providing CPR to a sudden cardiac arrest victim even if a shock is not needed. When applying chest compressions, the Zoll AED Plus will either tell you to “push harder”, if needed or “good compressions” if no change is needed. To assist with your timing, the Zoll AED Plus will play the metronome to lead you in pushing at the correct rate. The suggested push is 2 inches deep and at a rate of 100 pushes per minute. If the depth of your compression is not correct you can look at the display to see what depth you are currently pushing. Currently, there is no other AED that offers both depth and rate monitoring. That makes this AED pretty hard to beat.
