My friends at the ChroniclesofEMS.com produced this excellent video of the features in the Zoll E-Series Monitor. Mark and Justin show off good CPR technique and just a bit of breathlessness – as they should – after doing CPR. It is a lot of work and a new rescuer should rotate in every 2 minutes.
My service upgraded to the Zoll E-Series at the end of 2009. I like it’s ease of use, but familiarity with the M-Series operations. We are not using the CPR feedback and see-through CPR because we are in the midst of a clinical trial for a related resuscitation device. Once the trial is complete I am looking forward to implementation of these features. I am also excited to have wave form capnography.
On a related, yet important note, one of the things I like most about the new Montior is the pockets and zippers are better set up to hold the BP cuff, electrodes, defib pads, and electrode cables. This makes the morning rig check faster and field deployment easier and tidier.
