ZOLL TherOx SuperSaturated Oxygen Therapy to Be Highlighted at TCT Scientific Symposium

ZOLL® Medical Corporation, an Asahi Kasei company that manufactures medical devices and related software solutions, announced that its TherOx® SuperSaturated Oxygen (SSO2) Therapy will be highlighted at the upcoming Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) annual scientific meeting November 4-6 in Orlando, Florida. The TCT Scientific Meeting, the world's premier conference for interventional cardiovascular medicine, will offer both live and virtual options for the 2021 meeting.

ZOLL TherOx will host product demonstrations and discussions with thought leaders who will share their real-world experiences with SSO2 Therapy in technology suite #CS 5.

In addition, Stephen Lynch, MD (Beaumont Hospital, MI) will be presenting a case study featuring SSO2 Therapy and one patient's remarkable recovery during the Moderated Challenging Case session TCT 517 on November 6 at 1 p.m. EDT in Halls A-B, Level 1.

"Our participation in and support of TCT is an essential part of expanding the frontier of STEMI care with SSO2 Therapy," said Neil Johnston, President of ZOLL Circulation.

SuperSaturated Oxygen (SSO2) Therapy is the first and only FDA-approved treatment shown to significantly reduce myocardial damage in heart attack patients after percutaneous coronary intervention. SSO2 Therapy delivers dissolved oxygen at 7-10x normal directly to the damaged heart muscle to salvage heart tissue immediately after the coronary artery has been successfully opened via angioplasty and stenting. In clinical studies it has been shown to reduce infarct size by 26% in patients who suffer left anterior descending ST-elevation myocardial infarction (LAD STEMI) ? also known as widowmaker heart attacks due to the high mortality rate ? and are treated within six hours of symptom onset.1

SSO2 Therapy was developed by Irvine, California-based TherOx, Inc., now part of ZOLL.
