In-hospital first responders equipped with a LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor can make the lifesaving difference for victims of cardiac arrest. In support of early defibrillation, the American Heart Association recommends first responders be authorized and trained to administer the initial shock, rather than waiting for the arrival of the resuscitation team. The LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor is highly intuitive to use and adapts to various patient environments. It skillfully combines an AED function for the infrequent, BLS-trained responder, with manual capability so that ALS-trained clinicians can quickly and easily deliver advanced diagnostic and therapeutic care. It’s two defibrillators in one.
Easy to use for early defibrillation
• The 20e is highly intuitive to use, making it easy for infrequent AED-trained responders to quickly understand and use.
• The closed door reduces the “confusion factor” and ensures basic responders are presented with only the controls they require to facilitate fast and easy operation.
• The proven Shock Advisory System™ from Physio- Control guides users through 1-2-3 step operation, with loud voice prompts and clear, simple graphics.
• cprMAX™ technology provides a resuscitation platform that can increase CPR hands-on time and minimize delays between CPR and shock.
Clinically advanced and packed with power
• When the code team arrives, the 20e easily converts to manual mode – with the easy push of a latch the 20e automatically converts to a manual defibrillator.
• For quick and effective clinical decisions, more advanced monitoring parameters such as ECG, external pacing and pulse oximetry are displayed clearly through color-matched waveforms and values.
• MASIMO SET® pulse oximetry offers accurate and stable oxygen saturation monitoring, for quick and effective clinical decisions under conditions of both active movement and low perfusion. (Optional cable required to meet alternate monitoring needs.)
• Lithium-ion battery technology provides extended operating time, making it easy to transport patients from one area of the hospital to another.
