ZOLL’s AED Plus is equipped with Real CPR Help technology. The sensor in the pads lets the AED see each chest compression and lets you know how you’re doing. It guides you, with prompts and a real-time bar gauge, to the recommended depth and rate of compressions.
A back-lit display screen provides simultaneous text with every audio prompt, and a circle of lighted graphical icons that show what to do.
