What's Included?

  • 1 set of Lifeline AED Pediatric Electrode Pads

Designed for use with the Defibtech Lifeline AED range, these pediatric electrode pads are recommended for use on children over the age of 1 years old up to 8 years old. 

Children, just like adults, are susceptible to suffering cardiac arrest. In order to be prepared for such an event, it is vital to have a set of paediatric electrode pads as part of your AED’s ready kit.

Pediatric electrode pads reduce the joule output from the AED to a safer level for that of a child’s heart. This feature is guaranteed in the Defibtech Lifeline AED Pediatric Defibrillation Pad Package.

Pad features

  • Pediatric electrode pads reduce the joule output to a level that is safe for a child’s heart
  • Preconnected by design to save time in an emergency situation
  • Designed to be used on children aged 1-8 years old
  • 2 year shelf life before they need to be replaced
  • Clear and easy to understand images assist with the electrode pad placement in an emergency

How to use

After a child has fallen victim to sudden cardiac arrest, the minutes that follow are critical. If effective CPR and defibrillation of the heart from an AED is provided within 3-5 minutes of collapse, the child’s survival chance increases from 6% to 74%,

After removing the electrode pads from their protective foil packaging, simply apply the pads to the patient’s bare chest, referring to the diagrams for assistance in placing the electrode pads correctly.

Once the electrode pads are successfully attached, they will relay data back to the AED and the unit will decide whether the child requires a shock or not. If no shock is required, then no shock will be delivered.

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.
