R Series Defibrillator – Zoll – Recertified




The ZOLL R Series Defibrillator is the first self-check Code Ready defibrillator on the market. ZOLL Medical has produced an easy-to-use, reliable defibrillator that will exceed your expectations, no matter your needs. Whether the heart rhythm is shockable or non-shockable, all sudden cardiac arrest patients will require CPR, and the better the CPR, the better the outcome. With the R Series ALS and the R Series Plus, you can meet the needs of all providers, whether BLS or ALS-trained and all patients, from pediatrics to adults.

The Recertified Zoll R Series Defibrillator you order will include all necessary accessories for immediate operation out of the box. A one-year warranty covers our units through our sister company, ReNew Biomedical, and we offer a 30-day warranty on our accessories included with the unit.

ZOLL R Series Defibrillator Features

The R Series Defibrillator is the newest hospital-quality defibrillator ZOLL offers and boasts extensive features and options. The primary R Series unit has 3-Lead ECG and pacing features, but oxygen saturation(SPO2), non-invasive blood pressure(NIBP), and end-tidal CO2(EtCO2) features are all available.

CPR Metrics on Display

Using Real CPR Help® technology, the R Series provides audio and visual feedback that guides rescuers to deliver high-quality CPR consistently. If compressions aren’t deep enough, you will hear, “Push harder.” Detailed visual feedback, including the rate and depth of each compression, is displayed on the CPR Dashboard™. If either one falls out of the Zoll R Series Guidelines-recommended range, it will be indicated by a color change. Additionally, the diamond-shaped Perfusion Performance Indicator, or PPI, quickly indicates how well the combined rate and depth of compressions match current CPR Guidelines. The dashboard also provides a compression release indicator. When the bar is full, you know you’ve come completely off the chest to allow full recoil.

See-Thru CPR®

One of the most common reasons for interruptions in CPR is stopping to determine whether an organized, shockable rhythm has developed. With ZOLL Medical’s patented See-Thru CPR® technology, the compression artifact is filtered out, making it possible to see whether an organized rhythm is present during CPR. By reducing the duration of pauses, See-Thru CPR is just one more way the R Series is designed to help you provide high-quality CPR.

OneStep Simplicity

Delivering therapy is easy with the OneStep™ family of electrodes. Monitor, defibrillate, or pace—without needing a separate three-lead ECG cable—with OneStep Complete electrodes. To take advantage of Real CPR Help, use OneStep Complete, OneStep CPR, or OneStep Pediatric CPR electrodes. And, with a dual circuit design, OneStep electrodes can remain pre-connected, even during a 30-joule shock test. They’re available in the Zoll R Series in anterior/anterior or anterior/posterior configurations.

Extensive Pediatric Capabilities

When used with OneStep Pediatric electrodes, the Zoll R Series Defibrillator automatically reduces the shock energy to a lower protocol, starting at 50 joules rather than 120. When the R Series is in Advisory mode, or the R Series Plus is in AED mode, the OneStep Pediatric electrodes enable a pediatric algorithm to distinguish between a shockable and non-shockable rhythm. The unique OneStep Pediatric CPR electrodes also provide visual feedback by displaying the rate and depth of every compression on the CPR Dashboard. These electrodes are specifically designed to ensure precise CPR measurements in small children.

Always Code-Ready®

The R Series conducts a comprehensive self-test of more than 110 individual readiness indicators once a day. Using standard wireless technology, it can automatically relay this information to the Defibrillator Dashboard,™ which provides a quick snapshot of the overall health of the entire defibrillator fleet that can be viewed on a PC or mobile device. Defibrillator Dashboard optimizes defibrillator readiness and increases efficiency for the biomedical engineering team.

Debrief with Unmatched Accuracy

After a cardiac arrest event, the R Series Defibrillator supports continuous quality improvement (CQI) initiatives by pushing two buttons, sending the code data rapidly and wirelessly to a designated server. These comprehensive data include the number of shocks, ECG, end-tidal CO2 values, and CPR quality, which can be viewed using several code data programs. Choose the one that’s right for your institution.

MME is dedicated to serving your needs, so any unit ordered comes with the appropriate cables for the features requested.
