LCHD EMS Staff receives grant for new Zoll E-Series Monitors

LCHD EMS staff is proud to announce that we received the Local Projects Grant from the State for $19,845 to purchase 3 new Zoll e-series Monitors for our trucks and 3 new Engle EMS fridge/freezer.

EMS Director John Baker states upgrading the portable cardiac monitors to the new Zoll “E” series monitors that include end-tidal CO2 monitoring with waveform capnography is the ‘gold standard’ in patient monitoring.

The Hospital also purchased two of the same monitors for the emergency room in order to maintain congruency throughout care.

The new refrigerators allow us to utilize hypothermic treatment on cardiac patients.
