Featuring the same advanced technology trusted by emergency medical professionals—yet simple to use—the LIFEPAK CR Plus automated external defibrillator (AED) is designed specifically for the first person to respond to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). Unlike AEDs with complex prompts and limited energy for defibrillation, the fully automatic LIFEPAK CR Plus AED combines an easy two-step operation, just the right level of guidance, and the capability to escalate to 360 joules when needed.
Two steps: turning the device on and applying the electrode pads to the victim. That’s all it may take to make the difference between death from sudden cardiac arrest and a better chance for survival. The fully automatic CR Plus then takes over, giving ClearVoice prompts and delivering the shock—up to an industry-leading 360 joules—without anyone pushing a button. A recent study shows that safety is not compromised when untrained rescuers use a fully automatic AED compared to a semi-automatic AED*.
Step 1: Turn it on
Step 2: Apply the electrode pads
