ZOLL, an Asahi Kasei Group company, develops and markets medical devices and software solutions that help advance emergency care and save lives, while increasing clinical and operational efficiencies. With products for defibrillation and monitoring, circulation and CPR feedback, data management, fluid resuscitation, therapeutic temperature management, and ventilation, ZOLL provides a comprehensive set of technologies that help clinicians, EMS and fire professionals, and lay rescuers treat victims needing resuscitation and acute critical care. Cardiac Science develops, manufactures, and markets AEDs and related parts, components, and accessories. The company also provides a comprehensive portfolio of training, maintenance, and support services for AED customers.

With the completion of the acquisition, Cardiac Science will become part of ZOLL’s Resuscitation division, but will continue manufacturing in its facility in Deerfield, Wisconsin. ZOLL will continue to promote, market, and supply the Powerheart line of AEDs and Rescue Ready services as well as ZOLL AEDs and PlusTrac program management.

“We are excited about the alignment of our two companies and our combined ability to place lifesaving technology into the hands of more lay rescuers and first responders during medical emergencies,” said Elijah A. White, President of ZOLL Resuscitation. “This acquisition fits well into ZOLL’s vision of providing integrated, innovative acute and resuscitation care for all.”

“Cardiac Science and ZOLL both provide proven AED solutions to broad segments of the public safety market,” added White. “With Cardiac Science now part of ZOLL, we’ll be able to offer our customers more choices and a stronger AED program management infrastructure to ensure that both families of AEDs are ready when needed.”
