Physio Control, now part of Stryker is a world leader in the development of defibrillators, monitors and other emergency medical equipment.
The defibrillators within the Lifepak range from Physio Control allow responders of all training levels to feel confident when delivering treatment an emergency.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) does not discriminate, striking anyone at any time or place. A shock from a defibrillator and effective CPR is the only definitive treatment for SCA. Treatment must be delivered within the first 3-5 minutes of collapse for the best chance of survival.
Why do electrode pads need replacing?
Electrode pads have a shelf life of 1-5 years depending on what make and model your defibrillator is.
The gel covering the pads are likely to be ineffective in adhering to the skin to analyse the heart and deliver a shock if one is required beyond the expiration date.
Why does a defibrillator need a replacement battery?
Batteries have a shelf life of 2-7 years depending on what make and model your defibrillator is.
Batteries enable the unit to carry out regular self-tests to ensure your defibrillator remains in working order. Batteries also provide the power needed to deliver a potentially life-saving shock to a person in cardiac arrest.
Whether or not you have purchased your defibrillator or accessories from us previously, we can still remind you when your products are coming up for expiration when you register your expiry dates as part of our FREE Battery and Pad Reminder Service.
