- Lifepak CR2 8 Year 3G Data Plan
The Lifepak CR2 is the latest AED innovation on the market from Physio Control, boasting a wide variety of new features.
The new 3G capability is one of these features, with 3G connectivity added to their latest defibrillator in an effort to ensure that your device is ready to go and is ready to be used at all times.
The 3G capability makes the Lifepak CR2 the perfect device for first responders on the go as it gives you the peace of mind knowing that it is connected and ready to use at a moment’s notice. Rescue data can also be transferred to the emergency services, giving them prior knowledge before they arrive at the emergency.
About the Lifepak CR2
The Lifepak CR2 is available in both semi-automatic and fully automatic configurations. The semi-automatic device will require the first responder to actively deliver the shock to the patient by pressing a button, whereas fully automatic devices will deliver the shock without any prompts, only if a shock is needed.
To guide rescuers through the rescue process in any environment, the Lifepak CR2 is equipped with ClearVoice™ technology which adapts the audio rescue prompts to the surrounding environments noise, ensuring you never miss a step. It is also equipped with cprINSIGHT™ technology which analyses the patient's heart rhythm whilst CPR is being delivered, minimising the hands-off time.
Whereas other defibrillators require you to physically change the electrode pads attached to paediatric pads so the device can be used on a child, the Lifepak CR2 boasts a paediatric switch which, if pressed, lowers the Joule output to a safer level so the device can be used to treat a child who has suffered a cardiac arrest. This simple feature helps to save vital time in an emergency.
The development of LIFELINKcentral™ makes defibrillator maintenance simple, notifying you when your device's accessories are due to expire, 30, 60 and 90 days prior to their expiry date, allowing you plenty of time to restock. This software will also alert you if your device requires attention if your device were to fail its daily, weekly or monthly self-test. Ensuring your device is in perfect working condition at all times.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
