For use with your Philips FR2 AED, these Pediatric Electrode Pads will allow you to deliver a defibrillation shock to a child suffering cardiac arrest.
Sadly, no one is immune from a cardiac arrest and for children aged 1-8 years old, specific pediatric electrode pads are required to reduce the level of shock given. Once connected to your AED, these electrode pads will automatically reduce the joule shock delivery, ensuring it is safe for the size and frame of a child.
- Secured in protective packaging to keep the pads clean and secure before use
- Clean and clear images to the help the first responder to place pads correctly for treatment
- Exclusive for the Philips FR2 defibrillator
- Reduces joule output to a safer level for use on a child (aged 1-8)
How to use
Keeping a set of pediatric electrode pads with your AED is vital to ensure you can always deliver an effective rescue to a victim of cardiac arrest, no matter what their age.
With pre-connective ability, you can save time by keeping your electrode pads attached to your AED prior to a rescue. If your AED is positioned in a school, or a location which is often frequented by children, we recommend keeping paediatric pads connected to the AED at all times, with a spare set of Adult pads in your rescue kit so you’re prepared for all eventualities.
Once applied to the patient using the visual guide on the pad packet, the electrode pads will automatically scan for a shockable rhythm, advising if one is required and when to apply CPR.
Follow the instructions from your AED to deliver the most effective rescue possible.

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.
