More than 55 years ago we introduced a medical device that launched an industry. Today we continue to set new standards for the design and manufacturing excellence of lifesaving tools for lifesaving teams in and out of the hospital.
Physio-Control. The world leader in the development, manufacture, sale and service of external defibrillator/monitors and emergency medical response products and services.
Physio-Control pioneered defibrillation technology. In the late 1950s the company founder, Dr. Karl William Edmark, developed a device that sent a direct current (DC) electric shock through the heart to terminate ventricular fibrillation. This first DC defibrillator became the prototype for medical devices used by emergency medical services and hospitals around the world. Ten years later Physio-Control dramatically changed the face of emergency medical care forever with the introduction of the first portable defibrillator / monitor.
We continue to build on this early success. Working in partnership with EMS, nurses, doctors and medical researchers, we vigorously pursue new technologies for incorporation into our family of products. Today our products are designed to work together to give emergency caregivers, in the hospital or on the street, more control of a critical event. Our path is clear. Our goal is simple. To manufacture emergency response tools of the highest quality to help clinicians and emergency responders, anywhere in the world, through the toughest kind of emergencies. We take our responsibilities seriously. When we say we work to help save lives, we mean it.
