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.
Ease of Use
Unfortunately, children are just as likely as adults to suffer a sudden cardiac arrest. To be prepared for such a case, it's essential to have paediatric electrode pads as part of your AED first aid kit.
Paediatric pads reduce the joule output from a defibrillator to a level which is suitable to the heart of a child — a feature which is guaranteed in the Defibtech Lifeline AED Paediatric Defibrillation Pad Package.
- Paediatric pads reduce the joule output of the defibrillator to a safe level for children
- Preconnected to the AED, the pads save time in an emergency
- Can be used on children ages 1 – 8
- Can be unused for 2 years before replacement
- Clear and bold images help with pad placement during an emergency
How to use
Once a child has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest, the following minutes are crucial. If treatment is provided within 3-5 minutes (defibrillator and CPR administration), survival chances increase from 6% to 74%.
Once removed from the protective foil packaging, apply the preconnected pads to the patient. Clear images will help the first responder apply the electrode pads correctly.
Then the pads can relay heart data to the defibrillator, and the unit can decide if treatment is necessary.
