Replacement Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes

Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrodes Compatibility – use only with Physio-Control LIFEPAK 500 AEDs with a pink connector or any LIFEPAK CR® Plus defibrillator. Intended for use on children less than 8 years of age or 25kg.
Infant/Child Electrodes are smaller than adult defibrillation electrodes. The electrode reduces the energy dose delivered to the patient by a factor of four. If the AED is set up to deliver a dosage of 200, 300, 360J using adult defibrillation pads, the dose will be approximately 50, 75, 86J with the Infant/Child Electrodes. Item# 11101-000016 (CR16)

Batteries, pads and electrodes are all consumable parts of any defibrillator and must be replaced over time.  When it comes to defibrillation electrode pads, efficacy, patient comfort and ease of use are vital to defibrillation/cardioversion and positive patient outcomes, the EDGE System electrode pads with REDI-PAK lets rescuers receive the best technology available on all counts. The Physio-Control REDI-PAK preconnect system allows electrode pad connection prior to use without breaking the package seal, saves valuable time at patient arrival, allows electrode pads to be pre-connected which eliminates time-consuming electrode pad changes and promotes continuity of patient care.  It is recommended to always have a spare pediatric electrode with your AED in case of a second emergency.

Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (VT).  A defibrillator delivers a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart. Although not fully understood, this would depolarize a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the dysrhythmia. Subsequently, the body’s natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm.

Defibrillators can be external, transvenous, or implanted (implantable cardioverter-defibrillator), depending on the type of device used or needed.  Some external units, known as automated external defibrillators (AEDs), automate the diagnosis of treatable rhythms, meaning that lay responders or bystanders are able to use them successfully with little or no training.
