We are the number 1 distributor for all first aid products. Having a first responder kit to hand ensures that the pads can be attached to the chest in the most effective way possible.
This ‘Z shaped’ pad with its single piece speeds up the resuscitation process drastically. The CPR aid also shows the rescuer where to apply pressure to the patient’s chest and measures if your compressions are adequate. The voice prompts will signal if you need to adjust your method.
The kit also comes complete with accessories such as a razor and scissors that will enable you to prepare the patient for the defibrillator to fulfil its role correctly.
- Pre-connected to save time
How to Use
All jewellery and other obstructions must be removed from the patient in order for the AED to do its job. The scissors can be used to cut the patient out of their clothing if need be and a razor is provided if the patient has a particularly hairy chest.
Apply the CPRD- Pad to the patient’s chest and await further instructions from the defibrillator.
We advise replacing ZOLL pads every 5 years.
Our service includes a free reminder sent to you via email when your pads are due to expire. This ensures that you have enough time to buy a replacement.
About the Manufacturer
The development of the defibrillator has been dated back to the 1950’s when Doctor Paul ZOLL began to demonstrate the effects of external defibrillation in creating a stable heart rhythm.
ZOLL have produced pads with the longest shelf life on the market due to the development of an enhanced bonding agent.

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.
