November 18th, 2008

Medtronic / Physio Control is one of the world’s leading medical technology providers, pledging to “alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life for millions of people around the world.” Founded in 1949 by Earl E. Bakken and Palmer J. Hermundslie, Medtronic / Physio Control has since focused on being the leading producer of pacing technology, in addition to providing therapeutic, diagnostic, and monitoring systems for cardiovascular markets.

Medtronic Defibrillators

Medtronic works in conjunction with the Physio-Control Corporation to be the leading supplier of external defibrillators. Physio-Control emerged in 1955 with the determination to reduce the number of sudden deaths during cardiac surgery. In 1972, the LIFEPAK defibrillator was introduced for usage in hospitals and ambulances, featuring the ability to transmit ECG’s by telephone. Physio-Control defibrillators like the LIFEPAK system, offer features like the ADAPTIV biphasic technology that allows for both manual and AED modes in hospital or clinic settings. Medtronic defibrillators adapt to various environments to better serve the unique needs of both patient and physician.

The Physician’s Resource offers Medtronic defibrillators like the LIFEPAK system, as well as compatible battery support systems. Designed for ease of maintenance and operation, The LIFEPAK 500 Automated External Defibrillator is perfect for first responders to cardiac emergencies.
