What's Included?

  • 1 set of FR2 Adult electrode pads
  • 1 set of FR2 Pediatric electrode pads

The Philips FR2 Adult and Pediatric Pads Family Pack provides you with a set of adult electrode pads and a set of pediatric electrode pads, ensuring that regardless of the age of the casualty, your AED is prepared with the accessories to act.

By ensuring you have a set of adult electrode pads, alongside a set of pediatric pads, you can have peace of mind that you will be able to assist in any cardiac arrest situation, regardless of the patient's age.

Pad Features

  • Electrode pads are kept safe and secure prior to use in sealed packaging
  • Easy to read diagrams help with pad placement on the patient
  • Exclusive for use with the Philips FR2 AED
  • Sticky conductive adhesive ensures that once the pads are placed on the patient, they will not move
  • Pediatric pads reduce the Joule output to a safer level for a child's heart (aged 1-8)

How to use

Once either set of pads have been successfully attached to the patient, they will then begin to analyze the patient's heart rhythm to determine whether or not the patient requires a shock or not. It is important to remember that if no shock is required, no shock will be delivered.

After the pediatric pads have been connected to the AED, the device will automatically recognize that they are designed for pediatric use and lower the Joule output to a level safe for the heart of a child.

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.
