- 1 pair of Fred Easy Paediatric electrode pads
These paediatric pads allow rescuers to administer a defibrillation shock to casualties between the ages of 1-8 years old, automatically reducing the size of the shock delivered when connected to the device.
Cardiac arrest sadly claims the lives on 12 young people each week, which is why if your AED is in an environment often frequented by children it is a good idea to equip yourself with a spare set of paediatric pads so you can always be sure you’re ready to deliver life-saving treatment to a victim of any age.
- Reduced shock of 50 joules to suit the size and frame of a child
- Smaller surface area suitable for children
- Instructive diagrams to assist with pad placement
Paediatric pads are applied differently to a child than electrode pads to an adult and so the visual diagrams found on the pads are incredibly helpful for those who are unsure of where they are positioned for the upmost effectiveness.
Place the first electrode sticky side down onto the centre of the child’s chest with the second one placed directly on the centre of the child’s back, referring to the instructive diagrams for accuracy. Once attached your electrodes will get to work in analysing the victim’s heart rhythm just as with any other rescue, sending the findings to the defibrillator where it will determine whether a shock is required.
As all electrode pads are single use only, we do advise you always keep a spare set with your AED to ensure you’re rescue ready at all times and never caught without the essential equipment required to deliver a life-saving shock.

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.
