- 1 set of Cardiac Science Paediatric Defibrillation
If your AED is positioned in an environment often populated by children, a pair of paediatric electrodes is essential to allow you to deliver treatment to a child that has suffered a cardiac arrest.
Once you connect your pads your defibrillator will automatically work in paediatric mode, delivering a shock at a reduced rate of 50 joules which is safe for the frame and size of a child.
- Preconnect ability – saving vital seconds in an emergency
- Clear instructions on packaging to assist with pad placement
- Foil packaging to keep pads secure and safe
Whilst paediatric pads are essential to have with your AED if based in a school or nursery, it should also be considered for other locations. Children are just as likely to suffer a cardiac arrest as adults, so keeping a spare pair with your device is always beneficial to ensure your device is rescue ready regardless of what age the victim is.
All electrodes are single use only and all have an expiration date of which varies with each manufacture. It is because of this we always advise you have a spare set of electrodes kept with your unit to ensure you’re never without the vital equipment needed to transfer a defibrillation shock.
You can sign up to defibshop’s free reminder service, which will automatically notify you when the date of expiry of your pads is nearly reached. This allows you to keep on top of your defibrillator maintenance and ensures your device is always ready to be used in an emergency.
The defibshop Ireland team is always on hand throughout the team to assist you with any questions you may have. These electrodes can be pre-connected, so when you receive them, connect them immediately to ensure your AED is ready to go immediately when you switch it on. If you’re unsure how to pre-connect your new set, give one of our team a call for a step-by step guide.

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.
