What's Included?

  • 1 set of Electrode QUIK-COMBO with REDI-PAD

Electrode pads are an essential accessory when treating a victim of cardiac arrest. They create the bridge between the patient and the device to deliver defibrillation. Without these, treatment would not be possible. 

Cardiac arrest rescues are stressful situations for both victims and rescuers; a spare set of electrode pads removes the pressure of them becoming compromised or placing the electrode pads correctly on the victim first-time, from the rescuer.

Whilst electrodes are well packaged and protected prior to use, pads are vulnerable to the environment and its elements once removed, so if they are damaged when unpackaging, having a back-up pair will ensure that the rescue can still be carried out successfully.

Pad features

  • Designed for use with Physio Control’s Lifepak 1000 AED and CR Plus AED range
  • Pre-connected by design, saving vital time following the cardiac arrest
  • AED performs regular self-tests to ensure that the electrodes are in optimum working order
  • Sticky conductive adhesive ensures the pads do not move during treatment

How to use

After you have removed the electrode pads from their protective packaging, follow the instructional diagrams on the pads to assist with placing them correctly on the patients bare chest.

Once placed on the chest, the pads will analyse the victim’s heart rhythm and relay the information back to the AED. This data will help to determine if a shock is required or not. If no shock is required, no shock will be delivered.

If a shock is required, fully automatic AEDs will deliver the shock themselves, without the intervention of the user, whereas a semi-automatic AED will require the rescuer to deliver the shock. This is done by a simple press of a button.

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.
