The LIFEPAK AEDs (formerly Medtronic)

LIFEPAK AEDs by Medtronic / Physio-Control

Physio-Control is the manufacturer of the trusted LIFEPAK brand for defibrillation products. This company (as EMS professionals and healthcare professionals already know) offers a “go to” product line for the first-responder, hospital and clinic settings. But what about the ever broadening AED market and in particular the public defibrillator market?

Automated External Defibrillators are certainly being placed more prominently within huge vertical markets such as schools, corporations, universities, churches, non-profits, government, utilities, gymnasiums, and hotels. There are several more large markets which are noticeably under-deployed with these life-saving devices such as restaurants, retailers, public transit, and believe it or not nursing homes. With so many markets it is difficult for any one brand to have alternatives for each type of setting and each application for life-protecting AEDs. Physio-Control offers 3 excellent models and through a recent acquisition the offer even more.

The LIFEPAK 1000 is the premier AED product from Physio-Control. It is large and rugged and design and they’ve spared no expense when it comes to the large display screen to enhance usability. There is no doubt that this is advanced life-saving technology as it can deliver up to 360J of energy to the cardiac arrest victim. The LP 1000 is a favorite for FDs and PDs but it can certainly be utilized in public settings too.

The LIFEPAK CR-Plus is the middle level device for Physio-Control. It balances ease-of-use, low cost of maintenance and through clever design it is perhaps the fastest AED in the industry to deliver therapy. The CR-Plus defibrillator is versatile enough to be placed in facilities or vehicles. Customers love the ease-of-use features and in a moment of chaos the red handle to open pads is a clever design feature.

The LIFEPAK Express is the budget model for Physio-Control. It boasts many of the marvelous features offered by the black CR-Plus devices but this AED is more affordable and it is white in color. It is a great fit for organizations who great technology and what to be compatible with LIFEPAK devices but must manage a tight budget.

The HeartSine Samaritan PAD 350P and 450P are the newest members of the Physio-Control family. As part of a recent acquisition HeartSine (an Ireland-based AED manufacturer) look for the small and compact Samaritan devices to be a nice product line extension.
