At the scene of a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), there is no time to lose—every minute that passes means less of a chance for a victim to be saved. But no matter where or when SCA strikes, early use of a defibrillator is the only effective treatment for ventricular fibrillation (VF), a potentially fatal heart rhythm associated with SCA. Although not everyone can be saved from sudden cardiac arrest, studies show that early defibrillation can dramatically improve survival rates. The LIFEPAK EXPRESS defibrillator from Physio-Control is designed to be used by the first person to respond to an SCA victim—easily, safely, and effectively.
The LIFEPAK EXPRESS defibrillator is a critical resource that is easy to use.
Once a first responder—a coworker or simply someone nearby—activates the device and applies the QUIK-PAK™ electrode pads to the victim, the defibrillator analyzes the heart rhythm and provides step-by-step instructions via our calm, confident ClearVoice prompts. The LIFEPAK EXPRESS is designed to determine if a shock is needed and the easy-to-locate, flashing shock button alerts the rescuer to push the button.
The LIFEPAK EXPRESS defibrillator provides the most potent defibrillation energy available.
An initial shock to an SCA victim is delivered at 200 joules (200J), which has been shown to be effective in defibrillating the heart of a majority of patients. However, because some people are more difficult to defibrillate than others—and may need more than 200J—the LIFEPAK EXPRESS has the capability to escalate energy up to an industry-leading 360J.
LIFEPAK® devices from Physio-Control are the choice of professionals.
Although a rescuer may quickly respond to a sudden cardiac arrest victim, time can be lost in the transition to EMS. That’s why the LIFEPAK EXPRESS and all other LIFEPAK devices—the choice of more EMS units around the world than any other brand—use compatible electrodes and other technology, reducing the time it takes to transfer a victim to the care they need.
The LIFEPAK EXPRESS defibrillator is reliable and easy to own.
A readiness indicator lets you know the defibrillator is prepared to do its job. And the battery charger and electrodes have a synchronized replacement schedule that makes your maintenance program efficient and affordable.
