Sadly, no one is immune from cardiac arrest, which is why being prepared to deliver a rescue to both adults and children is imperative for increasing chances of survival. Children aged between 1 and 8 years old require a lower joule shock than adults; using the Infant / Child key automatically reduces the level of defibrillation provided without having to change over the electrodes.
The combination of SMART Pads and Infant / Child key is a cost-effective option for AEDs kept in a location which is often frequented by both adults and children such as malls, schools, and fitness centers.
- Plastic protective casing ensures the electrode pads are kept clean and undamaged prior to use
- Clear instructional images help the first responder to place the electrodes correctly
- Pre-connective design
- When connected, tested regularly with the AEDs daily, weekly and monthly self-checks
- Sticky adhesive ensures that once the pads are placed on the patient, they will not move during lifesaving treatment
- Can be used on both adults and children (when using the Infant/Child Key)
How to use
When providing a rescue, quick and effective treatment is key to increasing a patient’s chance of survival. Once the pads have been applied to the patient following the visual instructions on the reverse side of the packaging, the AED will get to work in searching for a shockable rhythm, advising you on what steps to take along the way.
Once the patient has been evaluated, your AED will instruct you to begin CPR, advising on when a shock is about to be delivered if needed. It is advised that you follow the AED’s instructions until medical assistance arrives.

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.
