The industry’s only combination of lifesaving tools specifically designed to work together, the Physio-Control System of Care captures vital patient and equipment information from our LIFEPAK® 15 monitor/defibrillator during a call, transmits it through the LIFENET® System, and manages that information with CODE-STAT™ 9.0 software for post event review.
The result is not just more data. It’s a clearer picture of the care you’re delivering today. The insight to elevate it for tomorrow. And the chance to save more lives.
With the introduction of the Physio-Control System of Care, we’re doing more than simply combining the strengths of our lifesaving technology. We’re giving you unprecedented insight into the performance and readiness of your teams, systems and equipment—and the ability to turn that insight into real, measurable and constant improvement in the care you provide.
The System of Care helps you to improve survival for cardiac arrest patients by providing critical information that can be used to increase CPR performance. The LIFEPAK 15 device records compression and ventilation data, defibrillation shocks, EtCO2 and vital signs. This information and patient data are sent via the LIFENET System to your QI team who can review it using CODE-STAT 9.0 software to evaluate hands-on time. The result is a strengthened feedback loop with EMS teams. Increasing hands-on time leads to increased survival, according to published studies.1
The System of Care helps to improve survival for STEMI patients by linking field and hospital care teams to speed the care cycle. 12-lead ECG data, patient age, gender and other important information can be transmitted from the field via the LIFENET System to receiving hospitals. This gives hospitals the opportunity to prepare for the patient’s arrival, which can potentially shorten time to definitive therapy. Shortened time to treatment has been shown to lead to increased survival.2, 3, 4
Readiness information is also included with the LIFENET System transmissions. The LIFEPAK 15 device records battery usage and condition and the LIFENET System delivers battery status along with device readiness information with each transmission, saving you valuable time. The highly reliable LIFENET System also allows remote equipment management which means your equipment is ready when you are.
