About the Lifepak 500
The Lifepak 500 by Medtronic/Physio Control at one time was one of the most popular AED’s in the United States both for private use and in emergency response.The Lifepak 500 was first introduced in 1997 and discontinued in January of 2007.During this time, the Lifepak 500 went through several revisions and software upgrades to maintain evolving CPR and AED standards.

As of today, almost all of the Lifepak 500’s are already past the 8-year manufacturer suggested lifespan. On January 31, 2015 support for the Lifepak 500’s along with sales of replacement pads, batteries, and accessories will end.This action will necessitate the replacement of all these AED’s. There will also be neither further software upgrades nor maintenance available for these soon-to-be outdated AED’s.
