- 1 set of Samaritan PAD Paediatric PAD PAK
For use with the Samaritan PAD range, these paediatric pads are created specifically to use on children aged 1-8 years old who have suffered a cardiac arrest.
With the ability to reduce the joule output provided by the defibrillator to an infant patient, the Heartsine Samaritan Paediatric PAD-Pak ensures that a child can be defibrillated safely in an emergency.
And with a connected battery/electrode pad expiry date, you only need to replace the PAD-Pak to replace both the electrode pads and the battery at once when either the pads have been used or they have expired.
- One single-use Paediatric cartridge contains both AED battery and electrode pads
- User only has to replace the PAD-Pak to replace the battery and electrodes
- Battery life for up to 60 shocks/6 hours of continuous monitoring
- Audible prompt when the battery power is down to 10 shocks or less
- Reduces the joule output to that which is suitable for use on children aged 1-8
How to use
The electrode pads, when required, have clear and bold images on the reverse indicating to the user where to place the pads correctly in preparation for treatment from the AED.
Once applied to the patient, they will begin to analyse the patient’s heart and send valuable data to the defibrillator so that it can be determined whether or not treatment is required.
For this to happen, the patient must be suffering from one of two conditions, either VF (ventricular fibrillation) or VT (ventricular tachycardia).

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.
