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 2002, the ZOLL AED Plus defibrillator received 510(k) marketing clearance from the FDA. The ZOLL AED Plus was the first system to provide instantaneous feedback on the depth and rate of chest compressions during CPR.

The Fully Automatic version of the AED Plus was introduced in 2013.
