What's Included?

  • 1 Pediatric Redipak electrode starter kit

 For use with the Lifepak 1000 range, the Pediatric Redipak Electrodes allow users to provide effective care to children under the age of 8 by automatically reducing the level of joules provided to a safe level.

Sadly, no one is immune from suffering a cardiac arrest, including children; therefore, we recommend keeping a set of paediatric electrodes with your AED, so you’re able to safely deliver the vital treatment to any victim of SCA.

Pad features

  • For use exclusively with the Physio Control Lifepak 1000 defibrillator
  • Reduces the joule output from the unit to a suitable level for a child
  • Clear instructions are provided, ensuring first responders know where to play the pads prior to treatment
  • Instructional cards provided as part of the starter pack to help with connecting pads

How to Use

Once connected to your AED, the level of joules delivered through the electrodes will be automatically reduced, ensuring it is safe for the size and frame of a child.

Once removed from their protective foil packaging, apply the pads to the child following the directions and visual aids provided on the electrodes. When attached, your AED will immediately get to work and will analyse the patient’s heart rhythm before determining whether defibrillation is required.

If a shockable heart rhythm is found, your AED will either automatically provide a shock if it is a Fully Automatic device or will request you deliver the shock by pressing a button if Semi Automatic. CPR will also be advised during this time.

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.
