LifePak 20 E Defibrillator/Monitor
When cardiac arrest occurs, the clock starts ticking. Respond
quickly with confidence.
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 operation.
- 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
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 defibrillator.
- 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
- 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
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.
