- 1 OnSite Adult SMART pad cartridge
This Adult SMART Pad Cartridge is for use with the Philips OnSite AED and will provide you with fresh electrode pads to use when treating a victim of cardiac arrest.
As all electrodes are one use only, we advise always keeping a spare set with your AED to ensure you’re always able to deliver a rescue and help save a life. The pads are protected by their plastic casing, to guard against any potential water or dust damage; this will ensure they are fit for use when you need them in a rescue.
With pre-connective ability, you can save vital seconds in an emergency by having your fresh pads connected prior to rescue; so all you need to do is apply the pads following the visual instructions on the packet, allowing the AED to immediately get to work.
- Clear and bold images help the untrained first responder to place the electrode pads in the correct position
- Shelf life of up to 2 years before they will need replacing if remain unused
How to use
Once applied to the patient, following the visual instructions on the packaging; the electrodes will automatically begin analyzing the patient’s heart to find a shockable rhythm.
If a shockable rhythm is found, you will be advised to begin CPR at a ratio of 30 compressions to 2 rescue breaths. Following this, you will be asked to either deliver the shock by pressing a button if your AED is Semi-Automatic, or to stand back as the AED defibrillates automatically if you have a Fully Automatic device.

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.
