More than 55 years ago, Physio-Control introduced a medical device that launched an industry. Today, they 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 pioneered defibrillation technology. In the late 1950s the company founder, Dr. Karl William Edmark, developed a device that sent a direct current electric shock through the heart to terminate ventricular fibrillation. The 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.
