Description

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.

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 2002, the ZOLL AED Plus defibrillator received 510(k) marketing clearance from the FDA. The ZOLL AED Plus was the first system to provide instantaneous feedback on the depth and rate of chest compressions during CPR.

The Fully Automatic version of the AED Plus was introduced in 2013.
