The most potent escalating energy available—_ADAPTIV biphasic technology provides the option to escalate to 360J for best results. Recent studies have shown that refibrillation is common among VF cardiac arrest patients and that defibrillation of recurring episodes of VF is increasingly difficult.1,2,3 One study “…clearly demonstrated higher rates of VF termination and conversion to an organized rhythm with the escalating higher-energy regimen when persistent or recurrent VF necessitated delivery of multiple shocks.” 1 The 15 gives you the option to escalate your energy dosing up to 360J for difficult-to defibrillate patients.
Monitoring parameters to meet your needs—_The LIFEPAK 15 monitor/defibrillator has the ability to monitor multiple parameters such as NIBP, SpO2, End-tidal CO2, and Invasive Pressures. At the same time, the 15 offers the ability to defibrillate and pace, simplifying the amount of equipment required.
New monitoring parameters—_Detect hard-to-diagnose conditions and improve patient care with Masimo® Rainbow® Technology. The 15 is the first monitor integrating noninvasive monitoring for carbon monoxide and methemoglobin (to detect chemical exposures and certain drugs).
Advanced support for treating STEMI patients—_Easily acquire a pre-medication 12-lead ECG and then rely on the 15 to continuously monitor all 12 leads in the background and alert you to changes via our ST-Segment Trending feature. Because ECGs (and STEMI diagnosis) can change so quickly, the 15 takes ECGs at frequent intervals and alerts you to changes in a patient’s ST measurement. Using your 15 in conjunction with the Web-based LIFENET STEMI Management Solution allows you to automatically share data from pre-hospital to hospital and to activate care teams.
Proven CPR guidance—_Demonstrated to aid users in performing compressions and ventilations within the recommended range of the AHA Guidelines,4 the CPR Metronome uses audible prompts to guide you without distracting vocal critique. And get the post-event feedback you need to improve CPR performance with CODE-STAT™ data review software with Advanced CPR Analytics.
Maximum viewability on transports and in a patient room— Large screen (8.4 inches diagonally), high resolution, and full-color display provide maximum viewability from all angles, making the 15ideal for in-hospital transport.
Latest Lithium-ion battery technology—_Battery power that beats or matches every competitor in the market. And the smart technology included in this battery system helps you manage your battery inventory appropriately, letting you know when battery life is coming to an end.
Data management—_As you treat patients, collect monitoring data in your LIFEPAK monitor/defibrillator. The 15 packs 16 times the memory and has 4 times more storage space for clinical data than the 12. Easily transmit data so information flows to where it’s needed. Whether you prefer the CODE SUMMARY™ printed record, or whether you want less paper, we have you covered. A variety of trending reports and event markers are available, to help you capture the data you need for patient records, clinical research, and quality assurance. And, the 15 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth® technology.
Upgradeable platform— Physio’s products are built as platforms— flexible to adapt to evolving protocols and new guidelines and upgradeable when you are ready to deliver new therapies. With 10 times more processing power and speed than the 12, the 15 is designed to grow as your needs change, helping you avoid costly premature replacements. This flexibility means the 15 is ready for the anticipated changes coming from the 2010 Guidelines.
Works when dropped or kicked during transport—_The LIFEPAK 15 device is the only device rated to withstand a 30” fall from bed height or a drop in transit. The double-layer screen can withstand crashes in elevators and hallways. Reinforced and redesigned cable connections lock tight for confident monitoring and therapy delivery. Easy to clean—industry-leading IP44 rating protects from fluids and substances, and exterior case and keypads are designed to help you meet requirements.
Always ready— The unit’s self-checking feature alerts the service team if the device needs attention—so you know it’s ready when you need it. An atomic clock in the device keeps you on time.
