Schiller Fred Easy Paediatric 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.
