How to use
Paediatric electrode pads enable you to act in the event of a child suffering a cardiac arrest. They are an essential piece of equipment if the AED is located in a location frequented by children. These electrode pads lower the Joule output provided by the defibrillator to a safer level for that of a 1 - 8-year-old's heart.
After the electrode pads have been removed from their packaging, the first responder should refer to the diagrams on the pads to help with correct pad placement as children require the electrode pads to be placed differently.
Once placed, the pads will then monitor and evaluate the heart's rhythm. This information will then be relayed back to the defibrillator and the device will determine whether treatment is required.
