What's Included?

  • 1 set of Lifeline AED Electrode Pads

For exclusive use with the Defibtech Lifeline AED range, these adult electrode pads will provide the link between the victim and the AED, allowing the life-saving shock to be transferred and restart the heart in a regular rhythm. 

These electrode pads have a shelf life of 2 years; be sure to remember that all electrode pads are single use only which is one of the many reasons we recommend always having a second set of pads ready to use. 

Pad features

  • Packaged in protective foil which keeps the electrode pads clean and secure with an easy to tear top
  • Pre-connected to the AED – so the pads can be included in the automated self-tests
  • Pre-connecting the pads to the AED saves time in an emergency situation
  • Clear and easy to understand images help untrained rescuers apply the pads correctly to the victim
  • Can be used with any of the Defibtech Lifeline AED range

How to use

After removing the electrode pads from the protective foil packaging, follow the clear images on the reverse of the pads. These images show the rescuer where to place the pads on the victim for effective treatment against cardiac arrest. 

Once the pads have been attached to the patient, they will analyze and evaluate the rhythm of the heart and then send the information back to the AED. The device will then analyze the information and decide whether defibrillation is required.

If the pads relay information about the heart which includes either Ventricular Tachycardia (V-Tach) or Ventricular Fibrillation (VF), the AED will then prepare to deliver a shock to the patient. If your Defibtech AED is fully automatic, it will deliver the shock without human intervention, whereas if it is a semi-automatic device, the shock will be delivered by pressing a button.

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.
