- Samaritan Pad-Pak Adult Cartridge
Designed for use with the Samaritan PAD AED range from Heartsine, this Pad-Pak includes both the electrode pads and the battery in one easy to use cartridge.
Using the Heartsine Samaritan PAD AED range could not be easier as the pad-pak provides both the electrode pads and the battery, all which are key components for providing the life-saving treatment to a victim of sudden cardiac arrest.
- Single use pad-pak
- Battery life of up to 6 continuous hours of operation or 60 shocks
- When the device is down to 10 shocks or less, a warning prompt will be emitted
How to Use
With the electrode pads and battery pack being connected, the maintenance on these devices could not be easier. There is only one expiry date to remember as both components of the pad-pak will expire at the same time.
During a cardiac emergency, the pads should be placed as per the diagrams on the reverse of them. After they have been successfully placed on the patient's chest, they will start to monitor the patient's heart rhythm and try to detect whether they are experiencing an arrhythmia.
The information collected is relayed back to the AED which will then make a decision as to whether the patient requires a shock or not. If a shock is required, the AED will charge, then the shock will be delivered by either pressing a button or automatically, depending on the device's specification. If no shock is required, no shock will be delivered.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
