ZOLL Medical will provide deployable vital signs monitors to the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Army through a sole-source contract from the Defense Logistics Agency.
Propaq MÂ is designed to function even in austere military environments andÂ to be configurable into the Propaq MDÂ variant through the addition of an integrated defibrillator and pacer, ZOLLÂ said Wednesday.
The company seeks to address theÂ military’s 12-lead electrocardiogram report and patient data printing requirements with the monitoring technology.
Propaq M features Masimo‘s Rainbow Signal Extraction Technology platform that includes Masimo’s SpHb Total Hemoglobin and PVI Pleth Variability Index as well as physiologic monitoring and three integrated invasive blood pressure channels.
The monitor is also built with a remote viewing tool similar to the one utilized onboard the U.S. Navy‘s USNS Comfort and USNS MercyÂ for humanitarian operations across the Asian Pacific, Caribbean and Central American regions.
ZOLL added that the contractÂ expands the company’s efforts to help theÂ Defense Health AgencyÂ to equip the U.S. military with airworthy and interoperable systems designed for various operations such as medical evacuations and critical care airlift missions.
