What's Included?

  • Powerheart G3 AED polarized adult defibrillation pads

Designed for use with the Powerheart G3 defibrillator range, these Adult Defibrillation electrode pads are simple to use and pre-connected by design, saving you time and allowing you to get straight into the rescue process in a cardiac emergency.  

Each electrode pad has clear, bold images printed, providing instructions on where to place the pads on the victim of cardiac arrest. In an emergency situation, these instructional images ensure that medical professionals and first-time rescuers are able to place the pads accurately and quickly.

Pad features

•    Pre-connected

•    Easy to open foil packaging which keeps electrodes safe and secure prior to use

•    Instructional images indicate where the pads need to be placed for effective defibrillation

•    The Powerheart G3’s self-test feature ensures the pads are in a rescue ready condition

•    The sticky adhesive ensures the pads will stay securely in place throughout the rescue

How to use

Firstly, remove the electrode pads from the packaging by tearing the foil, then once removed, peel the back away and place the pads on the patient’s bare chest, following the diagrams on the reverse of the pads. When successfully applied to the patient, the Powerheart G3 AED will begin to analyze the patient’s heart rhythm and determine whether treatment is required.

If treatment is deemed necessary, the AED will warn the rescuer that a shock is required. If the AED is the fully automatic version, the shock will be delivered without the intervention of the rescuer, if you are using a semi-automatic device, you will be advised to deliver the shock by pressing the flashing button on your AED.

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.
