GE Healthcare introduces the new Responder 2000, a technologically advanced, biphasic defibrillator-monitor engineered specifically to meet the needs of medical professionals in hospitals and clinics worldwide. It?s lightweight and powerful rechargeable battery make it one of the most portable units on the market.

Responder 2000 features manual and semi-automatic defibrillation modes, and can be used to perform cardioversion with ECG input from GEs Dash or Solar patient monitors.

Every Responder 2000 incorporates the patented RHYTHMx analysis algorithm and STAR biphasic waveform technology  enabling quick, accurate arrhythmia identification and treatment  and delivers energy via paediatric-adaptable external paddles, adhesive electrodes, and internal paddles.

*3 and 5-lead ECG

* SpO2 (via Datex-Ohmeda sensors) optional 

*Transcutaneous pacing (demand and fixed) optional 

*Simple-to-navigate user interface 

*Customisable settings

* Internal memory stores 40 20-second ECG strips

* Paediatric-adaptable external paddles 

*Bright, full-colour, backlit display Responder 2000
