Description

Cardiac Science, Inc. was formed in 1991 to develop FDA-approved rhythm-analysis software, the foundation for the first fully automatic bedside defibrillator.

In 2015, Cardiac Science launched the Powerheart G5 AED, a rugged military grade device featuring optional compression feedback pads, and the first AED with bilingual on the fly capabilities.

In 2019, ZOLL Medical Corporation acquired Cardiac Science.

ZOLL Medical Corporation was formed in 1980 with co-founders including Dr. Zoll who had previously been the first physician to successfully use external defibrillation to regulate heart rhythms in patients and discovered that external electrical countershock is effective in terminating supraventricular tachycardia and ventricular tachycardia.

In 2016, the ZOLL AED 3 was approved for distribution in Europe. Four years later, in 2020, the BLS version of the ZOLL AED 3 was approved for sale in the United States.

The ZOLL AED 3 has a color screen and provides images to assist the rescuer, giving them real-time CPR feedback which includes both rate and depth of compressions. The ZOLL AED 3 features built-in WiFi connectivity capabilities to assist with maintenance and monitoring.
