- 1 set of FR2 Paediatric Electrode Pads
To ensure that your defibrillator is completely rescue ready, having a set of paediatric electrode pads is an absolute must.
Once paediatric pads are connected to the defibrillator device and are successfully recognised by the unit, they will help lower the Joule output to a safer level for that of a child, aged between 1-8 years, if treatment is required.
- Brightly coloured packaging ensuring the pads are easy to locate in an emergency
- Secured in protective packaging to keep the electrode pads safe, secure and clean prior to use
- Easy to understand images to assist with correct pad placement on the patient
- Exclusive for the Philips FR2 defibrillator
- Reduces joule output to a safer level for use on a child (aged 1-8)
How to Use
Every second after a cardiac arrest is crucial. Having electrode pads pre-connected to your defibrillator helps to save vital time in an emergency and allows the rescuer to focus soley on the rescue.
Once the electrode pads are placed on the patient, they will begin to analyse the heart rhythm and relay data back to the defibrillator. This will then help to determine whether the patient is experiencing a dangerous heart rhythm. If either VF (Ventricular Fibrillation) or VT (Ventricular Tachycardia) is detected, the defibrillator will advise a shock. If neither of these arrhythmias are detected, the defibrillator will not shock or treat the patient.

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.
