What's Included?

  • 2 sets of Powerheart G5 Adult Electrode Pads

With clear instructions and the ability to pre-connect to your AED, the Powerheart G5 Adult Defibrillation Pads are a core part of your rescue equipment when treating a victim of cardiac arrest.

We advise always keeping a spare set of pads with your AED, just in case your current pair become compromised before a rescue. By ordering a bundle, you can have confidence you’re always ready to provide effective treatment, should someone suffer a cardiac arrest nearby.

Pad features

  • Non-polarized electrode pads can be applied to the patient in any order
  • Preconnected by design, the pads save valuable time during the rescue process
  • Easy to tear, foil packaging keeps the electrode pads safe and secure
  • Easy to peel corner helps the first responder prepare the pads quickly in an emergency
  • Bold images ensure the first responder knows exactly where to place the electrodes
  • If unused, no replacement pads are required for up to 2 years

How to use

Tear open the pads from their foil packaging and attach to the patient’s chest using the instructions provided on the pack.

Designed with speed and efficiency in mind, the electrodes are not polarized, which means the pads can be attached to either of the two locations on the body to provide effective defibrillation.

Once attached, the AED will automatically begin analysing through the electrodes to search for a shockable rhythm. If required, the AED will advise you what steps to take next including the delivery of CPR and when a shock will be delivered.

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.
