    When WDM EMS purchased the Zoll X-series monitors, they also purchased Zoll's patient care report (PCR) software, TabletPCR. Zoll recently released an app that allows a user to write a PCR and then transfer the report to TabletPCR for completion. Apple iPads were purchased and made available first in the two full-time hospital ambulances to allow the medics to write their reports while on long-distance transfers.
