Easy to Use
More powerful images, combined with synchronized voice and text prompts, help guide the responder
through the rescue. The ZOLL AED 3™ defibrillator also provides detailed CPR guidance with Real CPR
Help®, featuring an enhanced bar gauge that enables real-time feedback on the quality of CPR being
provided. High-quality CPR is essential to saving a life, but how do you know if you are pushing hard
enough and fast enough? Real CPR Help eliminates the guesswork.
Pediatric rescue is made easier with ZOLL’s unique CPR Uni-padz™ and a child button that allows a
rescuer to change the settings on the AED from adult to child with the push of a button. The ZOLL AED
3 can also be positioned to lay flat or stand up for maximum visibility from any angle. With a design
based on extensive usability studies of both trained and untrained responders, the ZOLL AED 3 is easy
to use by any rescuer.
Easy to Own
Because the ZOLL AED 3 is equipped with an industry-leading battery that lasts up to five years, as
well as ZOLL’s CPR Uni-padz, which have a shelf life of five years and can be used in both adult and
pediatric rescues, less-frequent maintenance and replacement of consumables is needed, making it
easier to own and providing the lowest cost of ownership once installed*.
* The AED 3 has the lowest cost of ownership once installed when pediatric pads are taken into consideration.
If deployed for adult patients only, it has the second lowest cost of ownership to the ZOLL AED Plus®.
