The Physio Control Lifepak CR Plus AED defibrillator is fully or semi-automatic, with a simple two-step process that gives the first person to respond the confidence they need to help save a life. The fully automatic model of the LIFEPAK CR Plus AED is designed to deliver a shock only if it determines a heart needs it. No one even needs to press a shock button.
With the ADAPATIV Biphasic technology it automatically increase the joules with each shock for patients that are difficult to defibrillate. Should the heart fail to respond to the initial shock, the device can deliver additional shocks, up to 360 J. This can increase the chances of successful defibrillation, with the goal of saving more lives.
This is one of the reasons this AED also has been widely used by medical personnel in many ambulances and hospitals in the Netherlands.
Easy to use
The CR-Plus is a handy AED that is very easy to operate. For example, the flap opens at the touch of a button and this immediately signals the start of the defibrillation for the AED. The pre-connected electrodes are immediately visible and easy to open and deploy with a red handle.
The AED is also equipped with an easy-to-read display that shows the status of the lightweight charging battery and on which the AED shows any messages in the form of icons.
An internal computer analyzes the heart rhythm, enabling people without medical training to provide potentially life-saving treatment at the touch of a button. The cost-effective battery system is lightweight and requires little maintenance; it can deliver 20 to 30 shocks with maximum energy and easily be recharged.
Every week and every time you turn it on the CR Plus AED performs a self-test. In addition, the defibrillator performs a comprehensive self-test every month. This makes sure it will be ready for use. ECG Data can be stored for wireless transmissions to a PC.

Why does every second count?
When someone suddenly gets a cardiac arrest, the heart stops beating. It’s what happens when the hearts electrical activity becomes chaotic. The brain will also no longer receive oxygen. The longer this oxygen deficiency lasts, the more mental and physical damage it causes for the victim, if he or she survives. That is why time is an important factor.
Worldwide, sudden and unexpected cardiac death is the most common cause of death, accounting for 17 million deaths every year with sudden cardiac death accounting for 25 % of these. It can happen to anyone, anywhere. But early resuscitation and defibrillation remains the key to survival.
A defibrillator applies a brief pulse of electrical current to a heart, allowing its normal electrical system to gain control. Defibrillation is the only effective treatment for ventricular fibrillation, a fatal heart rhythm associated with sudden cardiac arrest. Although not everyone can be saved, studies show early defibrillation can dramatically improve survival rates.
An AED is a life-saving emergency aid that anyone can use to restart the heart when it is struck by a cardiac arrest. The device is fully portable and gives the heart an electric shock to bring the heartbeat back to normal.
