LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator-monitor Salient Features:
The LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor is an enhancement to the
popular LIFEPAK 20 defibrillator/monitor, which has become the
standard of care in thousands of hospitals worldwide since its
introduction in 2002. The 20e offers all the capabilities and
ease of use of its predecessor, but now includes a more powerful
Lithium-ion battery extending ECG operating time, as well as the
run time of other parameters such as external pacing and
pulse oximetry. A new on-screen battery status
indicator displays the real-time status of available battery
capacity so clinicians can easily monitor remaining use time.
When cardiac arrest occurs, the
clock starts ticking. Respond quickly with confidence with LIFEPAK
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
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
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.
You can't always tell how much energy your
patients need just by looking at them
Like all LIFEPAK products, the 20e is capable of
escalating energy up to 360J for the broadest therapeutic dosage
for patients who fail to respond to previous shocks.
For patients who need additional
shocks, increasing the dose of subsequent shocks above the first
shock has been shown to be a better strategy for terminating VF
than simply repeating a failed dose. ADAPTIV™ biphasic
technology automatically adjusts shock duration and voltage,
based on the patient’s impedance level.
