Be ready
with 360 joules.

 

You can’t tell just by looking at them, but a surprising number of patients receive shocks that fail to terminate ventricular fibrillation (VF) at lower energy levels. For difficult-to-defibrillate patients, escalating the energy level to 360J can make all the difference in the world.1,2,3,4

That’s why all LIFEPAK® defibrillators give you the option to escalate energy to 360J—the most potent dose available. Whether you’re an EMS, hospital, or bystander responder, you can give sudden cardiac arrest victims the best chance for survival with 360J.
