LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor: two defibrillators in one.

The LIFEPAK 20 series was first designed for the hospital, but today medical professionals around the world—including both ALS and BLS providers—rely on the LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor. Easy enough for first responders—yet sophisticated enough for the cardiac team—you can trust the 20e,wherever you are in the hospital.

For difficult-to-defibrillate patients, the 20e uses our ADAPTIV™ biphasic technology for the maximum range of energy settings—up to 360 joules.

For patients who need additional shocks, this has been shown to be a better strategy for terminating shockable heart rhythms in patients who need more than one shock.

• AHA/ERC guidelines 2005 consistent
• cprMAX™ technology
• Simple yet sophisticated for responders of many skill levels
• Highly intuitive for quick, effective AED use
• Easily converts to Manual mode
• ADAPTIV™ biphasic technology adjusts shock duration and voltage
• Broad dosage capability up to 360J when needed
• Lithium Ion battery provides extended monitoring time
• On-screen “fuel gauge” displays battery capacity
• Compact and lightweight for easy carrying and versatile use
• Superb color graphics allow easy viewing from many angles
• Flexible therapy options (See options below)
• Easy to maintain and service

• Masimo® SET® pulse oximetry
• Noninvasive pacing
• QUIK-COMBO® electrodes or hard paddles
• Docking station


The LIFEPAK 20e defibrillator/monitor has seven main - operating modes:

Manual Mode: Provides a normal operating capability for ALS users. Allows access to manual mode energy selections up to 360J, synchronous cardioversion and pacing. ECG waveform is displayed.

AED Mode: Provides a normal operating capability for BLS users. All user features are available except manual defibrillation, synchronous cardioversion, pacing, and access to archived patient records. Provides shock energy defaults up to 360J. User selectable option to display ECG waveforms and/or visual AED prompts.

Setup Mode: Allows the operator to configure the device settings.

Service Mode: Allows the operator to execute diagnostic tests and calibrations, to display device module software and hardware versions, and to display and print the diagnostic code log.

Inservice Mode: Simulated waveforms are available for demonstration purposes. The waveforms consist of short segments of realistic data, which are repeated to form a continuous waveform.

Archive Mode: Provides operator the opportunity to access records of previous patients for review, transmission, printing, editing or deletion.

Auto Test Mode: Performs daily self tests


The device is an AC line operated device with an internal battery as backup.

AC Powered: 90–132 VAC 50/60Hz, 198–264 VAC 50/60 Hz, total power draw less than 120 Volt-Amperes (VA).

Internal Battery Backup: Lithium Ion. Battery charges while device operates from AC Power.

Operating Time: A new fully charged internal backup battery will provide the following prior to shutdown:

Monitoring plus SpO₂: (minutes): 210 5
Monitoring, plus pacing (at 100 ma,60 ppm), plus SpO₂ (minutes): 110 2
Defibrillation (360J discharges): 140 3

Battery Charge Time: <4 hours when device is powered off and AC power is applied.

Low Battery Indication and Message: When the device is unplugged from AC power, it switches to battery. When the battery gets low, the battery status indicator displays one yellow segment and a “low battery” message and warning tone occurs. Shortly thereafter the status indicator displays one flashing red segment, the “low battery; connect to AC power” message appears, and a warning tone occurs.

Service Indicator: LED illuminates when service is required.

The device can easily print a CODE SUMMARY ™ report, including an introduction with patient information and critical event record. The summary report also includes event and vital signs log, and waveforms associated with certain events. The device can print archived patient records and has two data communication ports — infrared (IrDA) and a direct serial port, which supports a serial data cable.


The device is capable of transferring data records by IrDA version 1.0.



ECG can be monitored through 3-wire or 5-wire ECG cables.

Standard paddles or therapy electrodes (QUIK-COMBO pacing/defibrillation/ECG electrodes or FAST-PATCH® disposable defibrillation/ECG electrodes) are used for paddles lead monitoring.

Compatible with LIFEPAK 12 ECG and therapy cables.

Lead Selection:

Leads I, II and III, (3-wire ECG cable)

Leads I, II, III, AVR, AVL, and AVF, V (c) acquired simultaneously, (5-wire ECG cable)

ECG size: 4, 3, 2.5, 2, 1.5, 1, 0.5, 0.25 cm/mV

Heart Rate Display: 20–300 BPM digital display

Out of Range Indication: Display symbol “---”

Heart symbol flash for each QRS detection

Continuous Patient Surveillance System (CPSS): In AED mode, while Shock Advisory System is not active, CPSS monitors the patient via QUIK-COMBO paddles for potentially shockable rhythms.

Voice Prompts: Used for selected warnings and alarms (Configurable On/Off)

Analog ECG Output: 1V/mV X 1.0 gain < 30 ms delay

Common Mode Rejection: 90db at 50/60 Hz
