MediRite has teamed up with Medtronic, the global leader in medical technology, to bring you the best and most cost-effective automated external defibrillators (AEDs) on the market.
The LIFEPAK CR Plus range, which includes both semi-automatic and full automatic versions, is used by more than 70% of the UK’s ambulance services to help save the lives of thousands of people who suffer a sudden cardiac arrest each day.
But because it is also designed to be used by less well trained and less frequent users, it is also the AED of choice for use on commercial premises. It is easy to understand and operate in a cardiac emergency when every second counts. A recent study found that untrained people could deliver a shock faster with the CR Plus than with other AEDs tested, and an independent review of five AEDS rated the CR Plus the best for ease of use and intuitiveness.
Statistics show that more than 75,000 lives a year in the UK could be saved by the immediate availability of an AED. Early defibrillation can increase a victim’s survival chances from 5% to more than 50%.
The LIFEPAK CR Plus is not only the top-rated AED on the market, but also the most cost-effective. The £1,495 price tag includes a carry case and two sets of pads which are often charged as extras by rival manufacturers.
In addition, there is no need to change the battery – ever! The CR Plus has a charge stick that is replaced free of charge every 24 months when you change the pads. Other AEDs require a battery replacement every five years at an approximate cost of £195.
The machine also carries a market-leading eight year warranty. But should anything go wrong with it, customers have full access to Medtronic’s team of on-the-road service engineers, a bench engineer at Watford and a dedicated Service Manager.
With 13% of workplace fatalities being caused by sudden cardiac arrest, it’s all a small price to pay for the potential of saving someone’s life.
