Physio-Control Lifepak Features
The Physio-Control Lifepak 20 defibrillator/monitor is an acute cardiac care response system used by authorized healthcare providers in hospital and clinical settings. The Lifepak 20 is only available with the biphasic defibrillation waveform. It uses QUICK-COMBO pacing/defibrillation/ECG electrodes of FAST-PATCH disposable defibrillation/ECG electrodes for ECG monitoring and patient therapy. The Standard paddles used with the Lifepak can be used for QUIK-LOOK ECG monitoring, defibrillation, and synchronized cardioversion therapies. When using standard paddles, a conductive interface designed for defibrillation, such as defibrillation gel or gel pads, must be used between the paddle electrode surface and the skin.
The Lifepak 20 defibrillator/monitor offers the following optional features:
