Advanced Cardiac Life Support monitor/defibrillators purchased by Cobb Fire and Emergency Services

cobb county logo

Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services has purchased 18 Advanced Cardiac Life Support monitor/defibrillators with SPLOST funds.

The monitor /defibrillators are 42% lighter and 66% smaller than other comparable monitors and give Cobb County Fire & Emergency Services the ability to:

  •  Assist paramedics in recognizing specific cardiac disorders such as a ST-Elevation Myocardial Infarction (STEMI). Early recognition allows the patients to bypass the emergency room and go directly to the cardiac catherization lab.
  • Electronically send EKG data to the hospital, reducing the time to definitive treatment for patients experiencing a possible heart attack.
  •  Monitor the effectiveness of cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) by using voice commands to ensure that patients receive high-quality chest compressions.
  •  Measure carbon monoxide levels in the blood stream, an important diagnostic tool for patients that have been exposed to high levels carbon monoxide.
  •  Assess vital signs quicker than manual assessment thereby reducing the time to critical life saving treatment.

A complimentary 12-Lead Training Program will be presented by Zoll Medical and Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services at the Cobb County Safety Village, 1200 Al Bishop Dr., Marietta, GA 30008.

There will be three one day training classes, July 23, 24, and 25 with class times of 800a.m.-4:30p.m.each day.
