What's Included?

  • 1 OnSite PediatricSMART pad cartridge

Smart by name, smart by nature – compatible with the Philips OnSite AED, you’ll need a Pediatric SMART Pad Cartridge to ensure you can deliver an effective rescue to a child suffering a cardiac arrest.

Once connected to your AED, the Pediatric SMART Pad will automatically reduce the shock levels delivered from 150 to 50 joules, making it a safe level for a casualty between the ages of 1-8 years old.

As all electrode pads are single-use only, protecting them against dust and water damage is essential; luckily, these pads come guarded by a clear plastic casing, ensuring they are kept clean and secure and ready to be used in a rescue.

Key features

  • Ample protection keeps the electrodes safe and secure prior to use
  • For use on child patients aged 1 to 8 years old
  • Shelf life of up to 24 months until they will need replacing if unused

How to use

These pediatric electrodes can be pre-connected ahead of time, allowing you to save vital seconds when delivering a rescue. Pediatric electrode pads are vital to allow you to provide a safe and effective rescue to a child aged between 1 and 8 years old.

Sadly, cardiac arrest can affect anyone of any age, which is why we always recommend keeping a set of both adult and paediatric pads with your AED to ensure you’re always able to provide care to a victim of cardiac arrest, not matter what their age.

Apply to the victim following the visual instructions on the packaging and your AED will immediately begin scanning the victim for a shockable rhythm. Follow the vocal prompts provided by your AED to deliver care as and when it is required; this will include delivering chest compressions and pressing the shock button if you are using a Semi-Automatic unit.

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.
