Physio-Control, Inc. Key Developments

Physio-Control Inc. Wins $46.01 Million Federal Contract

Physio-Control Inc. was awarded a $46,011,356 federal contract modification by the Defense Logistics Agency Troop Support, Philadelphia, for defibrillators, related components and accessories for the U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Marine Corps and federal civilian agencies.

Physio-Control Announces Enhancements to LIFENET System

Physio-Control announced enhancements to the LIFENET System, enabling direct server-to-server connectivity between LIFENET and electronic patient care reporting (ePCR) vendor systems via the cloud. This improved functionality will enable emergency medical service (EMS) and hospital providers using LIFENET and LIFEPAK monitors/defibrillators to deliver patient data directly to the ePCR application of their choice, making it easier for caregivers to collect and mobilize patient data for improved patient care and operational efficiency. Using the LIFEPAK software development kit (SDK), ePCR vendors can quickly and easily develop and implement direct server-to-server integration of LIFEPAK device data into their ePCR system records. This improved workflow eliminates the need for cumbersome cable connections between LIFEPAK devices and PCs/tablets or the need for Bluetooth, helping improve continuity of care and making the process more caregiver and patient-friendly.

Physio-Control, Inc. Announces Main Results of the Large Randomized LINC Study

Physio-Control, Inc. announced that the main results of the large randomized LINC study which compared the effectiveness of the LUCAS(R) mechanical chest compression system to high-quality manual chest compressions were presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The LINC study showed similar short-term survival rates for LUCAS (23.6%) and manual (23.7%) chest compressions. At 6 months, 8.5% of the patients treated with LUCAS were alive with good neurological outcomes compared to 7.6% in the manual group. The study provides the higher level of evidence that sudden cardiac arrest patients can be effectively treated using LUCAS mechanical chest compressions. The LUCAS chest compression system provides several additional benefits to resuscitation care: Frees rescuers to provide other life-saving therapies without the limitations or difficulties of manual cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR); Standardizes the quality of chest compressions adhering to the European Resuscitation Council and American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR depth, rate and recoil; Allows for effective CPR during patient transportation, while improving rescuer safety; Can be used in the catheterization laboratory to reopen blocked arteries during CPR. It is one of the larger controlled, envelope randomized trials for out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in history. The patients were randomized to either the LUCAS device receiving mechanical chest compressions with defibrillation provided during ongoing compressions, or to manual chest compressions according to the European Resuscitation Council and American Heart Association Guidelines for CPR.
