While other AEDs may be difficult to use or require users to stop CPR during analysis, the LIFEPAK CR2 defibrillator uses simple graphics, audible instructions and automated features to help users remain focused. We’ve removed all the guesswork with proven better results.
The CR2 was rated easiest to use, easiest to hear and highest in overall user confidence by AED users.
Even minimally-trained users can quickly begin lifesaving care in just 2 steps:
Step 1: Open lid and bare patient’s chest.
Step 2: Pull red handle and apply electrodes.
According to the ERC Guidelines, when bystanders provide CPR and use an AED to deliver a shock within 3-5 minutes of collapse or before emergency services arrive, survival rates can increase as high as 70%.
Layered design with easy to follow bold graphics
Both trained and untrained AED users clearly know how to begin.

While other AEDs may offer CPR feedback through the use of an accelerometer or additional tool, the CR2 provides the right amount of instruction and includes new cprINSIGHT™ analysis technology. Once CPR begins, cprINSIGHT technology automatically analyses and detects if a shock is needed. This significantly reduces pauses in chest compressions, even eliminating pauses if the rhythm is determined to be non-shockable. And more CPR means improved blood circulation and better odds of survival.
The CR2 is the only AED that allows chest compressions during ECG rhythm analysis thereby reducing pauses between CPR and defibrillation. In an AED comparison study, the CR2 helped lay responders deliver the highest overall CPR quality. If a shockable rhythm is detected, the CR2 delivers shocks with powerful escalating energy, with no judgment call required on the part of the user. Proven superior by competitive testing, the CR2 will keep the rescuer focused on what really matters—saving a life.
