Description

Headquartered in Connecticut, Defibtech was formed in 1999.

The Defibtech Lifeline ECG AED is similar to the Lifeline View, however, professional responders can switch to a display mode that shows the patient's ECG.

In 1955, Physio-Control was incorporated by Seattle based cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Edmark who developed the prototype ‘breadboard’ DC defibrillator.

In the early 2000’s, the LifePak Express launched as a cost effective alternative to the LifePak CR Plus.

Physio Control was acquired by Stryker in 2016. The LifePak Express AED has been deemed "end of life" and discontinued by the manufacturer.
