Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) knows no boundaries. Its victims are young and old, at the office and in class, worshipping, exercising, and walking to their airport gate. But no matter where or when SCA strikes, early use of a defibrillator is the only effective treatment for ventricular fibrillation, a potentially fatal heart rhythm associated with SCA. Simple, safe, and effective, LIFEPAK® automated external defibrillators (AEDs) from Physio-Control provide a critical resource to help a first responder—a colleague, a teacher, or simply a passerby—save the life of another human being.
The LifePak 500 AED was discontinued in 2007. Replacement parts, such as pads and batteries are currently still available, though it is recommended to replace any LifePak 500 AEDs that are currently in use.
Physio-Control offers two other AEDs. Learn more about them by clicking the links below.
