Simple enough; Strong enough
If your life was at risk from sudden cardiac arrest - If you needed the help of a colleague, friend or passerby - what life saving equipment would you want nearby?
Certainly an AED that is easy to use by a non-professional responder
But what about an AED that could escalate in power if the standard shock was ineffective at restarting your heart? The LIFEPAK CR Plus has the capability to deliver a shock at 360 Joules, the highest available power level in the industry.
A Joule is a unit of energy used as the measurement of a shock strength provided by an AED. An initial shock from a LIFEPAK CR Plus AED is delivered at 200 joules which has been shown to be effective at defibrillating the heart of a majority of cardiac arrest victims. However, some patients are more difficult to defibrillate than others, and a ineffective shock can leave them in VF longer and increase costly interruptions in CPR. Phyiso-Control only offers AED's with a full range of energy , with default escallating energy settings of 200j, 300j, then 360j
Recent world wide studies have shown statistically significant benefit for higher escalating shocks compared to fixed lower-energy shocks in patients with VF who require more than one defibrillation.
Simply put, Physio-Control belive the capacity for 360j gives patients a better opportunity for a better outcome.
