In Home Cardiac-Arrest Survival – more evidence

An earlier analysis of almost 5000 OHCA patients showed North Carolinians were more than three times as likely to survive to discharge after bystander-initiated CPR and defibrillation vs EMS-initiated interventions. Armed with an additional year of data and now 8269 OHCA patients, researchers this time homed in on whether outcomes varied by OHCA location

CPR and AED lead to greater survival

Hi Energy Defibrillation

360 Joules Does the Job Better

Lifepak defibrillators have the ability to escalate up to 360 Joules. Why? The answer is science.

When you consider the clinical peer reviewed evidence Physio-ControlLifepak shock performance has been evaluated in twice as many cardiac arrest vicitms as all five other manufacturers combined. So when we say we know how well our shocks work on real life cardiac arrest patients, we mean it.

Have a read about the evidence in the following pdf  360 Joules Does The Job Better
