ZOLL Medical awarded BHF tender for AEDS

ZOLL Medical Corporation, a manufacturer of medical devices and related software solutions, has announced that it has been designated a nominated supplier by the British Heart Foundation (BHF) for its ZOLL (Automatic external defibrillator) AED Plus® and ZOLL AED Pro®.

zollUnder 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 also won joint supplier status Level 2 and Level 3 for its AED Pro® for the next three years.  If fully exercised, the potential revenue for the contract could exceed £1.5 million for all three levels.

The tender process included leading professionals from both the medical community and ambulance services. It scrutinized all aspects vital to the delivery of the BHF Community Resuscitation programme including the clinical aspects of the devices, account management, compliance with resuscitation guidelines and compatibility with the ambulance service.

“One in three people who experience sudden cardiac arrest die before reaching the hospital. Experts believe these figures could be reduced drastically if there were more defibrillators in public places,” stated Claire O’Neill, Community Resuscitation Lead, British Heart Foundation. “We are delighted to be continuing our productive working relationship with ZOLL to place more AEDs in the community.”
