    At Life EMS, we use the LP12 on a daily basis. It is a grate monitor/defibrillator, and can be trusted time and time again. They come in many different configurations, and options. My favorite configuration is NIBP, ETCO2, 12 Lead, Data Transmission, and SPO2. You can operate them with the "hands free" combo-pads, or the traditional manual "paddles" for energy delivery. It is also helpfull when your local medical first responders have LP AEDs with compatible combo-pads.

    I like the Lifepak 12. We switched to the Zoll a few years ago. While the Zoll is easy enough to use, I still prefer the Lifepak.

    This device is probally the best unit out there. Its abillity to defibrilate at 360 joules sets it apart from its competiters. It is very user friendly and has features which come standard such as low flow capnography which if you own a Zoll cost an added $3500. Also in my experinces it is the most rugged unit out there.

    This is a very good monitor, never really had any problems with it I heard of some minor one's and one major one that one didn't fire when a medic needed it to during VF. but other than that it's been good for me for many years now. I like the size of the screen. I've used the Phillips monitor/defibulator and didn't care for the screen size but never had a problem with it neither.

    Great machine when you're the only medic in back.....which is usually the case. Hands free vitals so you can concentrate on taking care of your patient and doing advanced skills.

    I use these at my Part-Time job and they are good units. The only thing I have is the bulkiness of the unit and not having somewhere practical to store it when transferring patient on the stretcher. Other than that its an easy to use control interface, and its a very durable unit...TRUST me, I know!!!lol

    I love the LP12. We use it in Tulsa and I think it's amazing. I like the wireless connectivity when sending information to the MEDUSA. I also like that you can quickly and easily event your interventions.

    We have three older Lifepak 12's and just got four new ones in. I have not had many problem with the old ones and can not wait to start using the new ones.

    Very good monitor. But, I like Life-Pac 5. I know...its old. Hard to beat. True, 5 can not pace.

    The Defibrillator of choice thoroughout my service. An excellent piece of equipment that has improved our assessment and management of STEMI's. The telemed direct to our Cardiac Care Units allows for them to prepare for our arrival with a patient so there is no delay for the patient to get PCI.

    Reading through the reviews, I don't have much to add. If someone could come up with cost effective wireless electrodes, they'd be a millionaire...

    Use it on a daily basis. It is simple to use and the features like ETCO2, SPO2, 12-lead, NIPB, etc make it a awesome tool for the trade. I have used other monitor brands as well, but none of them have stacked up to the LP-12. Would recccomend it to any department ALS or BLS.

    Love this unit, it's easy to use and easy to train others on. Since it has aed capabilities we can crosstrain our basics and medics with little confusion and less equipment. We have some real rough roads out here and it handles those with very little artifact problems.

    I've worked with both the LP12 and Zoll. I prefer the LP12 because it is easy to use. My agency has it on all three units, although the county that we serve has agency split down the middle, half using Lifepak and half using Zoll
