    Im wondering if lifepak or any of the other companies make a BLS version. Im an EMT-B as a first responder for a security company. I dont need EKG, end tidal co2 or any other ALS functions but I would like 1 unit that will do NiBP, SP02 and AED functions. Does this even exist?

    I know of no such device, except the neutered monitor as noted.

    Save money and buy a stethoscope, BP cuff, standalone/finger pulse oximeter, and an AED. Even swap the steth & BP cuff out for the local family doc's electric wrist BP unit.

    In all seriousness. It's cheaper, easier to store, and much easier to maintain. Smaller in storage, smaller when in use.
