Maximize conversion rates with the 360J BTE waveform
LIFEPAK defibrillators use the biphasic truncated exponential (BTE) waveform and offer the most commercially available defibrillation energy in the industry. Clinical data shows for cardiac arrest patients who need multiple shocks, 360 joules improves conversion rates.
Low-energy defibrillators limited to 200J that use rectilinear biphasic waveforms (RBW) rely only on the level of current (A), which is only one electrical characteristic of a shock. No single characteristic of any biphasic shock waveform determines conversion rate.
Biphasic measurements testing at 90 ohms with the Physio-Control LIFEPAK 15 monitor/defibrillator, Zoll X-Series® monitor/defibrillator. Average human impedance range is approximately 70-80ohms.
