  • Powerheart G5 AED Intellisense™ Pediatric Defibrillation Pads

Cardiac arrest is a condition that sadly no one is immune from, even children. Research shows that 9,500 youths are affected annually by sudden cardiac arrest of which up to 95% do not survive.

Therefore, keeping a pair of Paediatric Defibrillation Pads alongside your AED is vital to make sure you’re always able to provide life-saving care no matter who or how old the victim is. 

The G5 Paediatric Electrodes can be pre-connected to your AED unit, helping you to save vital minutes during a rescue, this is especially beneficial if your AED is placed in an environment which is often frequented by children such as a school or sports center.

Pediatric pads are essential for using an AED on a child between the ages of 1-8 years old. Once connected the pads will automatically reduce the joule output of the AED, taking it to a level suitable for a child's heart.

Pad features  

  • Non-polarized pads can be placed on the patient in whichever order
  • Reduces joule output to a safer level, suitable for the heart of a child
  • Easy to open, foil packaging keeps the pads clean and secure before use
  • If they remain unused, the pads have a 2-year shelf life before expiry
  • Easy to understand diagrams help with pad placement
  • Can be preconnected to save valuable seconds during an emergency

How to use

Once installed and connected to the AED, the pediatric pads are automatically recognized and the unit will reduce the joule output.

Tear the protective foil packaging to uncover the electrodes and follow the clear diagrams for effective pad placement.

Once the pads have been applied to the patient, the AED will then analyze the heart and determine whether treatment is required, you will be instructed to deliver CPR and told if and when defibrillation is needed.

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.
