- 1 set of Redipak Quik Combo Electrodes
For use with the Lifepak range of AEDs, the Redipak Quik Combo Electrodes are an essential accessory for the process of using a defibrillator.
Having a spare set of defibrillator electrodes could mean all the difference when it comes to saving the life of someone who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
Although well protected prior to use, electrodes are vulnerable to the elements once removed from their foil packet, meaning that there is pressure for everything to go right first time. With a back up set of Physio Control Redipak Quick Combo Electrodes to hand, that pressure is removed.
- For use with the Lifepak CR+ and Lifepak 1000 defibrillators
- Pre-connected design ensuring that time is saved during the rescue process
- Defibrillator performs regular self tests ensuring the pads are in optimum working condition
- Sticky adhesive ensures that once the pads are applied to the patient, they will not move during treatment
How to use
After you have removed the electrodes from their protective foil packaging, there are instructional images on the pads to help the first responder to place the electrodes correctly on the patient.
Once placed, the pads will begin to analyse the heart of the patient and send the information to the defibrillator to determine if treatment from the unit is the best course of action for the patient.
If treatment is advised, the defibrillator will either deliver the shock itself (fully automatic models) or will advise the first responder to provide the treatment by pushing the shock button (semi automatic models).

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.
