ZOLL AED Product Selection Guide
AED Selection Guide
Medically Trained, Professional and First Responders
What level of training do your responders have?
ACLS (Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support) BLS (Basic Life Support)
No formal AED/CPR training
Will your responders require an ECG/EKG display?
The AED 3 is a better option for untrained rescuers. Trained responders will also benefit from AED 3 enhanced features but depending on their level of comfort, training or price sensitivity, may find the AED Plus adequate
If no ECG/EKG is needed – Use Lay-responder device
Do you have responders with current certifications on CPR and the use of an AED? Will they always be the person responding to an emergency? Is it likely or possible that an untrained person could respond?
AED Pro offers manual defibrillation
Wil your responders require Manual defibrillation capabilities?
AED Pro offers 3 lead monitor cable option
Will your responders require 3 Lead monitoring?
The AED 3 is always the best choice for pediatrics based on rescuer support and TCO
Could children ever potentially be present in your facility?
AED 3 BLS has Uni-padz and Child CPR feedback
Will your responders need support for pediatric rescues?
The AED 3 WiFi capability is beneficial in large deployments with centralized program administration, or when the program administrator is in a different location or when a customer values AED readiness
How many AEDs do you have (or plan to install)? Will your AED(s) be located in the same facility as the program administrator? Is AED readiness important to you?
Both can use CaseReview or CodeReview – WiFi on the AED 3 BLS offers a convenience advantage
Do your responders do post event debriefing of CPR performance?

Real-time CPR bar gauge
Larger color bar gauge may be beneficial to untrained users
ECG Text, & Bar Gauge
ECG + CPR Dashboard
ECG + Dashboard + See-thru CPR
All come with basic ECG capability. The addition of Defib Dashboard provides “real-time” numeric data on CPR performance. See-thru CPR filters out compression artifact allowing the rescuer to see the underlying heart rhythm. Ability to deliver a shock manually by the operator. Only done by ALCS trained users. All ZOLL AEDs use a child specific analysis algorithm. The AED Plus and Pro use separate 2 year pediatric pads. 5 year Uni-padz that can be used on adults or children. Pediatric CPR Feedback. Enables configuration and data downloads. USB is faster & less completed than IrDA. WiFi adds additional data transfer convenience & also enables remote monitoring of device readiness CaseReview and CodeReview software is available for all ZOLL AEDs. Both allow rescuers to review their CPR performance for training purposes. The ZOLL AED 3 can also transmit case data over WiFi. Faster shock times Improve CPR fraction helping ensure that profusion pressure in the heart is maintained. Lower cost option for monitoring vs. using defib electrode pads
Color rescue images may be easier to interpret by untrained users
CPR cycle timer
Cycle timer allows the reduction of CPR pause times.
Readiness & TCO
ZOLL AED’s use 5 year pads and batteries which reduces cost and minimizes maintenance requirements improving device readiness
3 Lead Cable (lead 2 only)
CPR-D Adult Electrodes
Last 5 years. One-piece design for fast/accurate placement. Lowest TCO in environments where only adults are present .
Last 5 years. Requires only one set of pads for adults or children. Lowest TCO in environments where both adults and children are present
Data X-Fer and Communication Method
Enables configuration, data downloads and cloud connectivity
Post Event Debriefing
USB is faster and less complicated to use than IrDA.
WiFi adds additional data transfer convenience and also enables remote monitoring of device readiness. Benefit to larger AED deployments.
