U.S. DoD Expands Standardization of ZOLL’s Propaq Technology

ZOLL Medical Corporation has announced the receipt of a sole source contract from the Defense Logistics Agency to supply Propaq M deployable vital signs monitors to the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Army.

The Propaq M, selected as the joint “Product of Choice,” is an advanced vital signs transport monitor, with capabilities far beyond the Propaq Encore 206, which has been the tried and trusted vital signs monitor serving the U.S. military over the last 25 years.

The Propaq M was designed specifically for the rigors of military operations in the most austere environments. The Propaq M can be equipped with an integrated defibrillator and pacer for critical lifesaving mission readiness. This configuration, known as the Propaq MD, eliminates the need to carry a separate monitor and defibrillator to improve operational efficiencies. During the competitive evaluation period, military subject matter experts stressed the importance of printing the 12 Lead ECG report and related patient data directly from the vital signs monitor. The Propaq M is the only airworthy vital signs monitor that is available with an integrated printer, thereby allowing the services to reduce size, weight and cube by eliminating the need to carry a separate standalone printer.
