The Excel Cryo Cooling System is a non-invasive, easy-to-use, cooling collar that can be applied in just 10 seconds to effectively cool the vascular system leading to and from the brain of cardiac arrest, stroke or traumatic brain injury patients. This method is designed to induce mild therapeutic cerebral hypothermia by lowering the temperature of the brain. The system features a uniquely designed collar with a specialized door that works in conjunction with the Excel Cryo Cooling Elements that achieve -5° C within seconds of activation. The Excel Cryo Cooling Elements are properly aligned with the patient’s carotid triangle and also immobilizes the patient’s cervical spine. The key to the system is how it extracts heat from the blood and cools it as the blood passes through the arteries, inducing mild hypothermia. Price: MSRP $230 www.cryothermicsystems.com 877/528-2888

Compact & Colorful Monitor
It’s hard to imagine that the new ZOLL X-Series EMS Monitor weighs just 12 pounds when the first portable defibrillator in 1965 weighed more than 140 pounds. That’s just one of the new features that paramedics, who carry their monitor on just about every call, are buzzing about. Along with its light weight, the new monitor features a 6.5" color screen that can display four different physiologic parameter tracings or a 12-lead ECG in either a static or dynamic view. The X-Series also includes Masimo rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry and Welch Allyn’s rapid non-invasive blood pressure technology. And the unit’s CPR dashboard provides real-time numeric depth and rate values, and a perfusion performance indicator to maximize CPR performance. ZOLL’s See-Thru CPR also helps minimize the duration of interruptions by filtering out artifact, allowing you to see organized underlying rhythms during CPR. VITALS Dimensions: 8.9" x 10.4" x 7.9" Weight: 11.7 lbs. Screen: 6.5" color LCD Battery Type: Rechargeable lithium-ion, 11.1 Vdc, 6.6 Ah Call for pricing www.ZOLL.com 800/348-9011
