ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, announced today that it has been designated a nominated supplier by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) for its ZOLL AED Plus® and ZOLL AED Pro®. Under the terms of the Level 1 Community Resuscitation Programme tender, ZOLL is the sole supplier to the BHF. The BHF plans to purchase AED Plus units annually from April 6, 2010 for the next three years to distribute in public places and areas of need throughout the United Kingdom.
“ZOLL is pleased to be providing public access AEDs that will encourage British citizens to provide emergency CPR and defibrillation in the event someone collapses from sudden cardiac arrest. This initiative will improve survival rates from this leading cause of unexpected death,” said Jonathan A. Rennert, President of ZOLL.
