ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it will display the LifeVest® Wearable Defibrillator, the AutoPulse® Non-invasive Cardiac Support Pump, and ZOLL’s Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM™) solution in Booth 873 at the 2012 Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) meeting October 22-26 at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

One out of every five acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients is at high-risk of dying following a percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedure.1 The majority of mortality in AMI patients post-PCI occurs in the first three months—one out of every 10 high risk patients die, with about 60% of this mortality due to sudden cardiac death.2 Data has demonstrated that protecting patients with the LifeVest post-PCI is associated with an 80% reduction in total mortality at 90 days and a 57% reduction over as much as three years compared to a matched cohort of patients not prescribed the LifeVest.3

“The LifeVest has been proven to significantly reduce total mortality in patients in the first 90 days following a coronary intervention,” said Richard A. Packer, Chief Executive Officer of ZOLL. “LifeVest is commonly worn by patients for 90 days following revascularization. The fact that the mortality benefit of the LifeVest extends well beyond the time patients typically wear the device is remarkable in that it may indicate potential clinical benefits related to optimization of medical therapy and patient compliance with prescribed treatment and follow-up, along with other broad healthcare impacts.”

The LifeVest is worn by patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), providing protection during their changing condition and while permanent SCA risk has not been established. The LifeVest allows a patient’s physician time to assess his or her long-term arrhythmic risk and make appropriate plans.

The LifeVest is used for a wide range of patient conditions or situations, including following a heart attack, before or after bypass surgery or stent placement, as well as for those with cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure that places them at particular risk.

ZOLL’s AutoPulse is an automated, portable chest compression device with an easy-to-use, load-distributing LifeBand® that squeezes the entire chest, improving blood flow to the heart and brain during SCA. The AutoPulse delivers high-quality, uninterrupted CPR chest compressions to maintain myocardial and cerebral perfusion even when moving patients, traveling in an ambulance or while a patient is undergoing PCI. Additionally, it offers the benefit of freeing up clinicians to focus on other life-saving interventions.

ZOLL’s Intravascular Temperature Management (IVTM) solution offers health care providers the power and control they need to rapidly, safely, and effectively manage the core body temperature of critically ill or surgical patients. The Thermogard XP® delivers accurate, easy-to-use and cost-effective control for both cooling and warming applications.
