The new RFDS state-of-the-art replacement patient monitoring technology on board our aircraft is smaller, lighter and smarter and will result in even better medical treatment for West Australians,

The Zoll X Monitors will mean that every stretcher on board an RFDS aircraft will now be like a fully monitored bed in a hospital emergency department. The equipment combines the functions of a critical care monitor with a defibrillator and pacemaker - all in the one unit. The monitors were developed specifically for the military and aero medical operations, and are able to handle 'tough' conditions, and are resistant to dust, water and impact.
