U.S. Cavalry Signs Distribution Agreement with ZOLL Medical Corporation

Radcliff, KY - November 10, 2005 - U.S. Cavalry, the world’s leading multichannel merchant of military, law enforcement and homeland security equipment, proudly announces that it has signed a new distribution agreement to sell the ZOLL AED Plus™ from ZOLL® Medical Corporation.

The AED Plus is the first and only automated external defibrillator (AED) with Real CPR Help™ that provides rescuers with real-time feedback on the rate and depth of CPR chest compressions. Only the ZOLL AED Plus  has this capability, which is designed to support both infrequent rescuers and seasoned professionals alike.

When sudden collapse occurs, successful resuscitation involves far more than pushing a button to deliver a shock. Rescuers must recall all their training to save a life. That’s why rescuers want more than just a defibrillator. From ABC assessment to defibrillation and CPR, the ZOLL AED Plus is the first and only AED to provide a complete roadmap of resuscitation.

With so many features designed to ensure successful rescues, it is no wonder a 2004 study, directed by Steven Miller, M.D., of Harvard Medical School, showed that the AED Plus helped lay rescuers follow more steps in the Chain of Survival than other commercially available AEDs. The ZOLL AED Plus has earned accolades from physicians and administrators alike. Brian K. Bishop, Executive Director of the Kentucky Board of Emergency Medical Services wrote, “The quality, durability, and functionality of the devices has proven to be exceptional…I am willing to recommend your services to anyone interested in improving cardiac care across the nation.”

Every aspect for the ZOLL AED Plus was engineered to facilitate easy use. The ZOLL AED Plus was designed in cooperation with first responders and law enforcement personnel, who wanted a brightly colored AED that could not easily be left behind at a scene, hence the lime-green color of the ZOLL AED Plus . The cover can even be removed and placed under the patient’s head to achieve the ideal position for maintaining a clear airway.

Furthermore, the ZOLL graphical operator interface instantly reinforces training and maps out the entire resuscitation procedure. The unambiguous pictorial instructions are on the AED itself so they are always at hand to instill confidence at the time of use. Sequenced LED indicator lights rapidly alert the rescuer to the appropriate step in the resuscitation procedure.

The AED Plus also features an LCD display, providing the rescuer with clearly written instructions that mirror the graphical operator interface. The LCD screen provides critical feedback, such as elapsed time, shock count and CPR depth displays. Voice prompts, and identical text and graphics combine to ensure proper usage by even the most inexperienced rescuer.

The revolutionary ZOLL AED Plus even provides real-time feedback on CPR depth and rate, such as “Good Compressions” or “Push Harder,” via the voice and LCD prompts. An adaptive metronome helps set the recommended pace for compressions. These two innovative features help eliminate the most common errors during CPR: inadequate or poorly timed compressions. No other AED on the market today has this capability.

This vital feedback is based upon compression measurements taken by the CPR-D•padz™, the world’s first one-piece electrode design. The CPR-D•padz simplifies placement by using familiar CPR landmarks. This is critical to the widespread use of AEDs, as electrode placement labeling is often overlooked or confusing to an infrequent rescuer. By eliminating placement confusion, the CPR-D•padz saves critical seconds. The ZOLL AED Plus  uses long-life consumer batteries for unparalleled convenience.
