We have had very limited sales of monophasic defibrillation products to Japan in recent years while awaiting regulatory approval for our biphasic waveform
The shock success rate--eradication of ventricular fibrillation after the first shock and restoration of an organized rhythm marked by at least two QRS complexes within 5 seconds--was 69% with biphasic waveform
defibrillation and 45% with monophasic.
One is a step forward in the technology of biphasic waveform
that should lead to a decreased device cost and the other bolsters the intellectual property surrounding long-term wear electrodes and covers many aspects and methods of extending the wear time of electrodes to over a week.
Therefore, we believe that our proprietary biphasic waveform
offers compelling clinical benefits that provide customers with a strong reason to choose ZOLL's biphasic defibrillators.
Packer added, "ORBIT is the largest trial ever reported for any biphasic waveform
and the first to document the performance of a biphasic waveform
in a typical EMS system operating at the advanced cardiac life support level, as opposed to AED use by first responders.
Other features include 30 joules of delivered output, biphasic waveform
, and both rate-adaptive and post-shock pacing therapies.
The AED Plus also incorporates ZOLL's proprietary Rectilinear Biphasic(TM) waveform, the only biphasic waveform
the FDA has cleared and labeled as clinically superior to monophasic defibrillators for conversion of ventricular fibrillation in high-impedance patients and for cardioversion of atrial fibrillation.
In addition, it provides the only clinically superior, low-energy biphasic waveform
on the market.
In this growing market, we increased our market share as customers continue to see significant advantages in the M Series platform and our biphasic waveform
Both of these platforms include ZOLL's proprietary Rectilinear Biphasic waveform
, which offers significant clinical benefits.
The study demonstrated 100% first shock efficacy for Biphasic WaveControl(TM), the Access CardioSystems proprietary biphasic waveform
, utilized in the AccessAED and AccessALS automated external defibrillators.
