It takes courage to step in and help when someone's life is at stake. By
acknowledging these rescuers for their heroism and celebrating survivors
of sudden cardiac arrest, ZOLL is emphasizing the critical role
bystanders play in saving lives through administering CPR and using an
AED to restore a normal heart rhythm.

"Our goal is to broaden public awareness of the importance of knowing
CPR and how to use an AED," said Elijah A. White, Vice President of
Marketing, ZOLL Resuscitation. "By asking bystanders who helped save the
life of an SCA victim, SCA survivors, and professional rescuers to share
their stories whenever a ZOLL AED is used, more lives can be saved."

"As part of our Heroes for Life program, ZOLL will present each SCA
survivor with a ZOLL AED Plus® to donate to a charity of their choice,"
he added. "ZOLL is committed to helping to save more lives by making
AEDs readily available to the public."

ZOLL is asking SCA survivors and their rescuers to complete the form on
whenever a ZOLL AED is used to help save a life and a ZOLL
representative will be in touch.

About Sudden Cardiac Arrest
SCA, an abrupt disruption of the
heart's function, which causes a lack of blood flow to vital organs,
claims more than 350,000 lives each year in the U.S. It is the leading
cause of unexpected death in the world and strikes without warning.
Timing is critical to survival. If a victim does not receive CPR and
early defibrillation from an AED, chances of survival decrease 10% with
each passing minute.
