Description

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

In 2002, the LifePak CR Plus launched as the fully automatic defibrillator.

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

ZOLL Medical Corporation was formed in 1980 with co-founders including Dr. Zoll who had previously been the first physician to successfully use external defibrillation to regulate heart rhythms in patients and discovered that external electrical countershock is effective in terminating supraventricular tachycardia and ventricular tachycardia.

In 2016, the ZOLL AED 3 was approved for distribution in Europe. Four years later, in 2020, the BLS version of the ZOLL AED 3 was approved for sale in the United States.

The ZOLL AED 3 has a color screen and provides images to assist the rescuer, giving them real-time CPR feedback which includes both rate and depth of compressions. The ZOLL AED 3 features built-in WiFi connectivity capabilities to assist with maintenance and monitoring.
