- 5 sets of FR3 SMART III electrode pads
To help save vital time during a rescue, these SMART pads will allow users to provide defibrillation to both adults and children when using the Infant / Child key. This takes away the need for a change of pads, allowing you to deliver treatment as quickly as possible to a victim of cardiac arrest.
Working together with the FR3 Infant / Child Key, once inserted the AED will automatically adjust the joule output depending on the patient without the need for paediatric pads.
- Protective plastic casing ensures electrodes are kept clean and undamaged prior to use
- Bold instructional images help any first responder to place the electrodes correctly
- Pre-connective ability
- Regular daily, weekly and monthly self-checks of electrode ability
- Sticky adhesive ensures electrodes do not move during lifesaving treatment
- Can be used on both adults and children (when using the Infant/Child Key)
- 5 Sets included in set ensuring you’re sufficiently stocked with the essential accessory
How to use
Firstly, remove the electrode pads from their protective packaging and place on the patient using the visual guide provided on the reverse side of the pads for effective placement.
Once attached to the casualty, your AED will immediately begin to analyze the patient’s heart through the electrodes to evaluate whether defibrillation is needed. The AED is searching for a shockable heart rhythm and so will instruct you accordingly as to what steps to take next and whether CPR is required.

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.
