Physio Control Lifepak 20 Defibrillator
Defibrillators are becoming standard in places that are not medically related, including police cars, restaurants, and schools. Defibrillators are undeniably the most recognized piece of emergency medical equipment. A defibrillator works by analyzing the electrical output the heart gives to the body. When no pulse and no electrical activity are monitored, the machine gives out a shock with the paddles. Physio Control has a large line of defibrillators under different Lifepak models. In this post we focus on the Physio Control Lifepak 20 model.
