What's Included?

  • 1 Pair of Paediatic Defibrillation Electrode Pads

Designed for use with the Powerheart G5 defibrillator, these paediatric pads allow you to administer treatment to a child ages 1-8 who has suffered a cardiac arrest.

These are an essential piece of equipment for your AED as they are integral for delivering a defibrillation shock to a victim straight from your device. If you keep your defibrillator in an environment which is populated largely with children such as a soon, it is advisable to always keep a spare set of these pads with your AED to ensure your device is prepared and ready to deliver a rescue at all times.

Additional Features

  • Automatic joule adjustment to suit the size and frame of a child
  • Non-polarized pads can be placed on the patient in whichever order
  • Easy to open packaging which keeps your pads safe and secure ready for use
  • Up to a 2 year shelf life
  • Helpful diagrams for correct pad placement
  • Pre-connected to help save vital seconds in rescue process

Helpful Tips

Paediatric pads allow a rescuer to use an AED on a child aged between 1 and 8. Once connected to your device, the pads will automatically reduce the level of shock delivered to 50 joules making it a safe yet effective level for the heart of a child.

As all electrodes are single –use only, we do recommend you keep a spare set with your AED so that should you original pair become used or compromised, you’re safe in the knowledge that you have a back up pair to complete the rescue.

If unused your paediatric pads will expire in 2 years, by registering to our free reminder service we’ll notify you when your expiry date is approaching, prompting you to repurchase the vital equipment needed for your AED to keep on top of your unit’s maintenance.

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.
