Public access defibrillation has been under the media spotlight in recent years and is now widely accepted as an absolute necessity in public spaces and where there are large gatherings of people. The Zoll Medical Corporation is a world-leader in defibrillator technology. Founder, Dr Zoll first began trialling early defibrillation and pacemaking techniques in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. He went on to pioneer the use of defibrillation in hospital and emergency settings and more latterly, for public access / first responders. Today, Zoll defibrillators are used extensively all over the world, saving many lives every day.
