Corpuls3 success down to ‘enthusiasm and determination’ of staff

The successful roll-out of our new Corpuls3 defibrillators is down to the ‘enthusiasm and determination’ of staff say the project team.

With west Essex, Bedfordshire, west Norfolk and the hazardous area response team (HART) all fully equipped with and trained on the Corpuls3, the roll-out is going well with more areas to follow soon; most of Essex, east Suffolk and north and east Hertfordshire have their ambulances stocked and ready to go with the new defibs, with the RRVs following soon, and south Cambs and west Herts are due to go live on their ambulances in the next few weeks.

Clinical Lead Dan said: “All in all, the roll-out is going very well which is completely down to the enthusiasm and determination of local teams to engage and train clinicians.

“A big thank you for your support, and to all of our staff who have who have come in, often in their own time, to get training on the new equipment.”

The team is working hard to train staff in west Suffolk, mid-Essex, Waveney and central Norfolk so that the roll-out can start there ASAP.

The new Corpuls3 is at the forefront of defibrillator technology, and as well as being lighter and easier to carry, it also has a long battery life and a user friendly screen.

Over the next few months, the project team will be looking at:

  • doing a subtle software upgrade on the machines; this will hopefully mitigate the issue with interference in V1 and V2 (12-lead) when there’s low network signal that you’ve been reporting;
  • talking further with PPCI units across the region about sending and receiving ECGs – currently the units are set up to send to the PPCI units, but the units at the other end aren’t set up to receive them. Right now you don’t need to send an ECG to the unit prior to activating the PPCI team, but if you need advice please get in touch with the clinical advice line who can log on remotely and have a look at your ECG;
  • the results of the Corpulweb trial, which is a system that allows authorised persons to log in and view in real time what the monitor and clinicians on scene are looking at, which could be helpful in providing real-time advice and support.
  • a dedicated page on East24 (intranet) with support materials like video tutorials, user guides and some FAQs. Watch this space for the go-live details. 

In the meantime, if you have any queries please speak to your DLO team or email the project team inbox at Please remember to report any faults or serious issues via Datix as well.
