Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) affects over 400,000 Americans every year, including more than 7,000 children and infants. A Cardiac Science AED can save a child’s life in the event of a cardiac arrest, but the standard adult electrode pads are not recommended for use on these pediatric patients. For children, we strongly advise using these Cardiac Science pediatric pads.
Which AEDs Are These Cardiac Science Pediatric Pads Compatible With?
These Cardiac Science pediatric electrode pads are compatible with all 9200 and 9300 series AEDs. Compatible models include:
- The Cardiac Science Powerheart AED G3
- The Cardiac Science Powerheart AED G3 Plus
- The Cardiac Science Powerheart AED G3 Pro
To use the pediatric pads, simply disconnect the standard adult pads adapter and connect the pediatric pads in their place. The AED will automatically adjust its settings for pediatric use.
Which Patients Require Cardiac Science Pediatric Electrode Pads?
These pads are designed for use on patients:
- 8 years old and younger
- 55 pounds or less
If no pediatric pads are available in an emergency, the standard Cardiac Science Adult Defibrillation Pads may be used in their place (one placed on the center of the child’s chest, the other on the center of their back). However, pediatric pads are much safer and more effective on small children, so they should always be kept on hand for emergencies.
Why Use Cardiac Science Pediatric Pads?
Pediatric pads use about 75% less energy than standard adult pads. Because children’s hearts are small and still developing, this reduced level of shock ensures safer defibrillation and a greater likelihood of a positive outcome.
