Physio-Control has been first on the scene to help save lives for over two decades and used by more EMS, fire, and police departments throughout the world than any other AED. The Physio-Control LIFEPAK product line of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) are portable, lightweight medical devices that automatically diagnose life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias and deliver an electric shock if needed. For professional use, the Physio-Control LIFEPAK 1000 sets the standard. The Physio-Control LIFEPAK CR2 is the newest AED to market, replacing the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED (discontinued by Stryker on November 27, 2019), which was a direct successor to the popular Medtronic - Physio-Control LIFEPAK 500 (now discontinued). The Physio-Control Express AED, designed with plenty of features at an affordable price, was discontinued on November 27, 2019.



This EMS-ready AED was designed for the field to withstand storage on squad cars, fire engines, or any other heavy access installations. The LIFEPAK 1000 can handle it all and approved for continuous vibration installations and rigorous drop-tests in the harshest environments. The device offers escalating energy to 360 J, biphasic, for even the most challenging patients and provides battery power for up to 220 shocks, escalating to 360 J and delivering 17 hours of monitoring time.

The LIFEPAK CR2 is the only AED with cprINSIGHT that allows chest compressions during echocardiogram (ECG) rhythm analysis, reducing pauses between CPR and defibrillation.
