The Physio-Control Lifepak 15 defibrillator/monitor gives you more monitoring capabilities than any other defibrillator/monitor. The Lifepak 15 continuously monitors all 12-leads in the background and alerts the operator to any changes, gives EtCO2 with continuous waveform capture, and features Masimo Rainbow technology to help detect hard-to-diagnose conditions with noninvasive monitoring of carbon monoxide, SpO2, and methemoglobin. Using the CODE-STAT on the Lifepak 15 data review software, the Lifepak Defibrillator Model 15 allows the operator to transmit, trend, or display the recorded data for post-event review.

Advanced Monitoring Parameters
With more monitoring capabilities than any other monitor/defibrillator, the 15 gives you EtCO2 with continuous waveform capture. Masimo Rainbow technology helps you detect hard-to-diagnose conditions and improve patient care with noninvasive monitoring of carbon monoxide, SpO2, and methemoglobin. In addition, the 15 offers temperature monitoring—and like other data, you can transmit it to other systems, trend it, or display for post-event review in CODE-STAT data review software.
Advanced Support for Treating Cardiac Patients
The 15 continuously monitors all 12 leads in the background and alerts you to changes using the ST-Segment trend monitoring feature, after acquiring the initial 12-lead. Additionally, STJ values are included on the 12-lead printout to help you identify changes. The 15 also works seamlessly with the web-based LIFENET System 5.0, so you can automatically share critical patient data with multiple patient care teams.
Full Energy Up To 360 Joules, for Every Patient Who Needs It
The Lifepak 15 monitor/defibrillator features 360J biphasic technology, which gives you the option of escalating your energy dose up to 360J for difficult-to-defibrillate patients. Why is this necessary? Recent studies have shown that defibrillation is common among VF cardiac arrest patients and that defibrillation of recurring episodes of VF is increasingly difficult. A randomized controlled clinical trial shows the rate of VF termination was higher with an escalating higher energy regimen of 200J and over.
Proven CPR Guidance and Post Event Review
The CPR Metronome in the Lifepak 15 monitor uses audible prompts to guide you without distracting vocal critique. A metronome has been a feature that has been demonstrated to help professionals perform compressions and ventilation within the recommended range of the 2015 AHA Guidelines. Post-event review of CPR data and delivering feedback to the team has been shown to be effective in improving CPR quality in both hospital and out-of-hospital.2,3,4 And by transmitting code data directly to CODE-STAT Data Review software, EMS personnel can review CPR statistics and provide training and feedback where it is most needed.

ECG is monitored via several cable arrangements:
3-wire cable is used for 3-lead ECG monitoring.
A 5-wire cable is used for 7-lead ECG monitoring.
A 10-wire cable is used for 12-lead ECG acquisition. When the chest electrodes are removed, the 10-wire cable functions as a 4-wire cable.
Standard paddles or QUIK-COMBO pacing/defibrillation/ECG electrodes are used for paddles lead monitoring.
