What's Included?

  • 1 Set of Pediatric Electrodes

For use with the LifepakCR+ AED, these pediatric electrode pads help provide safe and effective defibrillation to children between the ages of 1-8 years old.

Sadly, no one is immune from cardiac arrest, which is why AEDs are especially vital in locations often frequented by children such as schools.

Once connected to the AED, the pediatric pads automatically lowers the level of shock provided to ensure it is safe and suitable for the size and frame of a child.

Pad features

  • For use with the Physio Control Lifepak CR+ AED and the Lifepak 1000
  • Reduces the joule output from the unit to a suitable level for a child
  • Clear instructions are provided, ensuring that the responder is confident with pad placement
  • Instructional cards provided as part of the starter pack to help with connecting pads

How to use

When delivering a rescue process to a child, firstly connect the pediatric pads to your AED. Remove the electrodes from their protective foil packaging and apply them to the patient following the visual aids on the pads.

Once the pads are placed effectively, you can allow the AED to analyse the patient’s heart rhythm, before following the verbal instructions delivered by the unit. CPR will be required before you are advised whether a shock is needed; if you have a Fully-Automatic unit, a shock will be delivered automatically, if you have a Semi-Automatic device however you will be advised to press the shock button to send defibrillation to the patient.

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.
