What's Included?

 

    • 1 set of Paediatric Defibrillation Electrodes

 

For use with the Lifepak CR+, these paediatric electrodes allow a rescuer to deliver a life-saving defibrillation shock to a child aged 1-8 suffering from a cardiac arrest.

Paediatric electrodes are essential for environments where young children are often present. Connecting these pads automatically reduces the size of shock delivered to a victim to 50 joules, making it suitable for a child’s heart.

Additional Features

  • Helpful diagrams to assist with pad placement
  • Packaged in protective foil cover to ensure safety of pads
  • Sticky gel adhesive applied to electrodes to ensure they’re secure upon placing them on the victim

Helpful Tips

Once paediatric pads are connected to a defibrillator, your unit will immediately recognise this and will carry out the rescue as appropriate for a child.

With one electrode positioned on the centre of the child’s chest and the other on the centre of their back, your AED will immediately analyse for a shockable rhythm, advising whether defibrillation is required. At this point, you will be asked to position yourself safely away from the casualty so it can deliver a shock (fully-automatic) or to administer the shock by pressing a button (semi-automatic).

As all electrodes are single use only, we do advise for you to carry a spare set with your AED at all times. This means there is never a time where your defibrillator is without its vital electrodes and you are always able to carry out a rescue.

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.
