Philips HS1 Adult SMART Pad Cartridge
Philips HS1 Adult SMART Pad Cartridge
Product Code M5071Aie
- 1 set of Adult SMART Electrode Pads
Designed specifically to be used with the Philips HS1 defibrillator, these replacement pads come packaged in a robust cartridge to ensure your pads are safe and ready for use in an emergency situation.
Pre connected in design, you can simply insert this cartridge into your device to ensure your AED is prepared to deliver a rescue at any time. As all electrodes are single-use only, we do recommend that you keep a spare cartridge with your defibrillator at all times, to ensure that you always have a back up set, should they be required.
- Protective packaging keeps electrodes safe and secure until needed
- Pre-connected feature allows AED to self-check effectiveness of pads to ensure they’re in full working order and rescue ready
- Clear and easy to follow images assist the first responder in the correct placement of pads
- 2 year shelf life
Thanks to their pre-connected design, your AED will be ready to go in the instant you turn it on. Following the helpful instructions on the packaging of your electrodes, place the pads correctly on the patient and it will begin to analyse the patient’s rhythm, sending the data to the defibrillator which will decide whether a shock is required. A shock will be delivered if either rhythms VF (ventricular fibrillation) or VT (ventricular tachycardia) are found, advising you to stand back before this is administered.
As all electrode pads have an expiration date, we advise you sign up to our free helpful reminder service, which will automatically notify you when your pads or battery is due for replacement. This allows you plenty of time to re-equip yourself with the vital equipment needed to deliver a rescue, so you never find yourself without.
If you have any questions regarding our products, whether you want more information about our electrodes or would like a guide on how to pre-connect your replacement pair, get in touch where our customer care team are on hand throughout the week to assist you.

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.
