The Physio Control LIFEPAK CR Plus AED defibrillator is built for ease of use and effective treatment. Physio Control, formerly Medtronic, is the industry’s leader in the development of AED defibrillators. In the event of a sudden cardiac arrest, the LIFEPAK CR Plus is so easy to use that any layperson can attend to the victim. This is one of the few AEDs that offer automatic shock, which is helpful in promoting ease of usability for inexperienced responders. Physio Control has combined one of the easiest machines on the market with the most powerful. It delivers the strongest amount of energy for victims who are harder to resuscitate. The Physio Control LIFEPAK CR Plus defibrillator is backed by one of the longest warranties in the industry- 8 years, so you can feel self-assured that your purchase will continue to enhance safety in any setting over the long haul.
Requiring only a 2-step process, the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED is built to be simple. As a lifesaving device, it is crucial to create usability for the general public. Sudden cardiac arrests are unpredictable and can happen anywhere. With the LIFEPAK CR Plus, every school, home and office setting is prepared in the case of a sudden cardiac arrest. The LIFEPAK CR Plus comes with a readiness indicator that can be viewed even when in its case. Any person can use the device, simply by pressing the release button to open the lid. Once opened, the device turns on automatically, and the audio and visual prompts guide the responder through the resuscitation process. The LIFEPAK CR Plus defibrillator comes in both the traditional, semi-automatic format, in which case the responder presses the shock button when the voice prompt commands, or in the fully-automatic option, in which case the AED delivers the shock for the responder. Physio Control’s personalized ADAPTIV biphasic technology automatically adjusts the voltage needed for each victim.
LIFEPAK CR Plus defibrillators are used more often than any other AED brand by Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Universal utilization of the LIFEPAK CR Plus creates a seamless integration between commercial and public use and saves critical time when transferring the victim from the layperson to the medical professional. LIFEPAK CR Plus electrode pads are compatible and interchangeable with other LIFEPAK equipment models. The data storage log encased in the LIFEPAK CR Plus automatically tracks results and transmits data to any computer. Besides being the most used AED in the emergency medical field, it’s also the most powerful AED in the industry. When the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED produces a shock to a recipient, the first shock is delivered at 200 Joules (the unit of measurement for electrical energy used in AEDs). Most recipients respond to this level of shock. However, for patients who are harder to resuscitate, the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED automatically provides a shock of up to 360 Joules.
The LIFEPAK CR Plus defibrillator requires zero maintenance so you can rest assured that it will be ready in case of a medical emergency. It produces automatic weekly tests to ensure optimal functionality. The CHARGE-PAK (a battery created exclusively for the LIFEPAK CR Plus) and electrodes are synchronized for replacement every 2 years. This lightweight AED device weighs 4.5 pounds to allow for portability. Its measurements are 4.2 x 8 x 9.5 inches. The LIFEPAK CR Plus is water resistant and comes with accessories, including optional pediatric pads. The Physio Control LIFEPAK CR Plus AED is an essential CPR aid that can be used easily and confidently by even a layperson. This AED device can enhance safety in all private residences, public facilities and commercial environments.
