Of patients who underwent biphasic waveform
AED, 19% were eventually discharged home, as were 14% of those who underwent monophasic defibrillation.
We have had very limited sales of monophasic defibrillation products to Japan in recent years while awaiting regulatory approval for our biphasic waveform
One is a step forward in the technology of biphasic waveform
that should lead to a decreased device cost and the other bolsters the intellectual property surrounding long-term wear electrodes and covers many aspects and methods of extending the wear time of electrodes to over a week.
Data relating to the "Superiority of the Rectilinear Biphasic Waveform
to the Damped Sine Waveform for Ventricular Fibrillation in Pediatric Size Piglets" was presented in a poster session held in conjunction with a Resuscitation Science Symposium.
In addition, it provides the only clinically superior, low-energy biphasic waveform
on the market.
In this growing market, we increased our market share as customers continue to see significant advantages in the M Series platform and our biphasic waveform
Both of these platforms include ZOLL's proprietary Rectilinear Biphasic waveform
, which offers significant clinical benefits.
Given the current rate of acceptance for ZOLL's Rectilinear Biphasic waveform
, we simply felt efforts to bring out a monophasic version would be hard pressed to show a return.
This license encompasses all current configurations of the M-Series, including ZOLL's unique rectilinear Biphasic waveform
, and accessories.
We have invested to establish ZOLL's Biphasic waveform
as the technology of choice going forward.
MD stated: "Cardioversion with the Rectilinear Biphasic waveform
reduces the energy threshold for atrial fibrillation and is successful in patients resistant to monophasic cardioversion at 360 joules.
