LIFEPAK CR

When you need a defibrillator you need it now and you need it to work. Heart attacks can cause what is known as ventricular fibrillation. This is when the heart beats too erratically. The electrical signals in the lower part of the heart are uncoordinated and ineffective, causing very little blood to be pumped from the heart into the body or lungs. This can result in cardiac arrest and if the heart does not return to a regular rhythm within 5-7 minutes, it could be fatal. The LIFEPAK CR defibrillator is one of the top AED’s on the market.

An Automatic External Defibrillator (AED) is the device that is used to shock the heart back into regular rhythm. The AED is a small computer with an electrical current. When the current is applied to the heart, it stuns it momentarily, stopping all activity. This gives the heart a chance to restart itself and resume regular beating.

From the world leader in medical technology, the Lifepak CR is an external defibrillator meant to work immediately after a cardiac emergency to restore normal heart rhythm. The Lifepak CR is applied outside the body immediately after cardiac arrest and walks the person through the procedure with voice prompts. This Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is to be used by the first person on-hand in a cardiac emergency. The device also has an internal memory that can analyze and record the heart rhythm.

Lifepak CR is meant for the layperson not trained in handling cardiac arrest, although it is often the device of choice for many professional responders. It’s small and easy to use which saves precious time in an urgent situation. It analyzes the rhythm of the heart and advises the person on scene as to whether shock is needed. If shock is needed, there is a simple button to push to apply the electrodes and administer. Lifepak CR uses the latest proven, flexible ADAPTIV™ biphasic technology which automatically adjusts energy based on the person’s needs. If the heart does not respond within the first shock, this AED will provide extra shock, up to 350 joules.

Choose between the semi-automatic or fully automatic LIFEPAK CR plus. Both easy to use, the semi-automatic requires 3 steps, and fully automatic requires 2. With the semi-automatic CR Plus, the device assesses the heart. The rescuer then applies the electrodes and when the device is ready, it signals to push a button and apply the necessary shock. With the fully automatic CR Plus, once the rescuer applies the electrodes, the device does the rest.

The lightweight, cost effective power system requires little maintenance, can deliver 20 – 30 full energy shocks, and is easy to recharge. Simple icons indicate the status of the CHARGE-PAK™ battery charger. The Devise is able to deliver six shocks or provide 42 minutes of operating time after 24 hours of recharge and 20 shocks or 140 minutes of operating time after 72 hours of recharge time.

The Lifepak CR also stores ECG data for wireless transmission through an infrared IrDA port to a personal computer, making data cards obsolete. User friendly, PC-based software allows for complete and efficient review of both ECG and event data. Information from the CR Plus can be downloaded and stored in either the LIFENET® DT Express information management system or CODE-STAT™ Suite medical informatics system.

Included are: one AED Trainer, remote control and cable, simulated battery charger, set of reusable training electrodes capable of approximately 30 applications, carrying case (soft-sided, grey), AED Instruction Card, Operating Instructions, and batteries for remote control and AED Trainer. This training system follows all eight American Heart Association Heartsaver AED training scenarios and all four American Red Cross training scenarios. Create a number of custom scenarios for your students with the multi-function remote control.
  • For $169 – Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Starter Kit. Use only with LIFEPAK® 500 Biphasic AED with pink connector, LIFEPAK® 1000 defibrillator, LIFEPAK EXPRESS® AED or LIFEPAK CR Plus AED. For use on children less than 8 years of age or less than 55 lbs (25kg). If you have currently purchased the starter kit in the past, you will need to only order the replacement electrode package, #CR16.
  • For $149.00 – Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes. Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes Compatibility – use only with LIFEPAK 500 AEDs with a pink connector or any LIFEPAK CR® Plus defibrillator. Intended for use on children less than 8 years of age or 25kg (55lbs).
  • Infant/Child Electrodes are smaller than adult defibrillation electrodes. The electrode reduces the energy dose delivered to the patient by a factor of four. If the AED is set up to deliver a dosage of 200, 300, 360J using adult defibrillation pads, the dose will be approximately 50, 75, 86J with the Infant/Child Electrodes.
  • Other accessories include: Device Carry Casefor LIFEPAK® CR Plus AED, Wall Bracket for LIFEPAK CR Plus AED, Wall Cabinet Mounts & AED Wall Placard
