The Emergency Clinic at UD has become an Eastern European resuscitation reference center

After several months of testing, the complex resuscitation device of one of the world's leading American defibrillator manufacturers, also supporting ambu balloon ventilation, which can be used to provide more efficient emergency care for critically ill patients, has finally arrived at the Emergency Clinic of the University of Debrecen Clinical Center. The manufacturing company has asked the Emergency Clinic to be a reference center for resuscitation in Eastern Europe. In addition to patient care, the device also supports teaching and research work.

Due to its electrodes, the ZOLL Series X Advanced device provides continuous feedback on the rate, depth and proper release of chest compressions even during CPR. Specialists receive feedback on the volume and correct rate of breaths delivered using an ambuballoon. Based on the received data, the user of the defibrillator can continue resuscitation more effectively. The device collects and stores the data using the appropriate software, so they can be evaluated and analyzed afterwards. Studies have proved that using the device improves both performance and survival rate.

 - The Clinical Center and the Emergency Clinic regard the uninterrupted development of patient care, an important element of which is instrument development, as their priority. We are pleased and honored to be able to use a tool of great potential in the care of critically ill patients in the future. We use this device not only in resuscitation situations, but also to monitor patients, since using the device enables us to check several vital functions at the same time, so we can follow the patient's condition second by second - explained Zoltán Szabó, President of the Clinical Center, Director of the Emergency Clinic, Emergency Medical Head of department.

The professor added that in addition to the healing activity, the device's special software will also help the high-quality scientific activities of the Department of Emergency Medicine in the future, primarily in research areas related to the development, prevention and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias. Zoltán Szabó is confident that outstanding test results will be achieved in the near future with the use of the software, which they are planning to describe in international scientific journals.

The system manufactured by ZOLL Medical Corporation is already used by many large international reference centers around the world. The world's leading defibrillator manufacturer has asked the Emergency Department of the University of Debrecen Clinical Center to introduce and use their latest complex defibrillator monitor and resuscitation feedback program, which also supports ambuballoon ventilation, to its Eastern European reference institution.

The device has been tested at the Emergency Clinic since last August.

- We chose Hungary's first Emergency Clinic as a reference center because the institution is characterized by its commitment to development and innovation. It was here that we found the most supportive environment for cooperation. The specialists of the Emergency Clinic perform the important work with outstanding expertise, which ultimately results in the introduction of innovation, new tools and methods. I hope that in the future, with the new device, we will be able to significantly support the healing, educational and research activities - said Péter Sraud, commercial director of the Hungarian distributor, Speeding Kft.

On Tuesday, Zoltán Szabó, director of the Emergency Clinic, and deputy director Dóra Ujvárosy received the device and the East European Resuscitation Reference Center plaque from Zsoltné Farkas, the founding owner of Speeding Kft., and Péter Sraud, commercial director. At the handover ceremony, Professor Zoltán Szabó explained that the new device will greatly contribute to the realization of high-quality patient care at the European forefront in the Clinical

Center. He judged the establishment and continuous development of the Emergency Clinic to be an important step in the process, as well as the integration of the Kenézy Gyula Campus Emergency Department into the clinical system, which created one of the country's largest emergency patient care institutions with 250 employees and more than 60 doctors.
