Product Code MA2021
- 1 set of i-PAD NF1200 Paediatric Electrode Pads
For use with the i-PAD NF1200 defibrillator, these paediatric electrode pads are essential if your AED is for use in a child-friendly environment.
Why do we think paediatric pads are an essential tool to have as part of your first aid and AED kit? They enable your defibrillator to be used safely on a child if they suffer a sudden cardiac arrest and keep you rescue-ready at all times.
Once connected, paediatric pads ensure that the defibrillator supplies a reduced joule output to the patient, keeping the level of treatment to a suitable level for a child aged between 1 and 8 years old.
- For use exclusively with the i-PAD NF1200 defibrillator
- Clear images on the electrode packaging ensure that no matter who the first responder is, they can quickly apply the electrodes in the right location on the body
- Sticky adhesive ensures that once the pads are placed on the patient, they will not move during treatment
- Paediatric pads ensure that a lower joule output is provided by the defibrillator
How to use
Once removed from their protective packaging and connected to the defibrillator prior to use, the AED will acknowledge the connection of the paediatric pads and automatically reduce the joule output to a level which is suitable to the heart of a child.
This ensures that the child receives expert medical attention following a cardiac arrest and is afforded the best chance of survival. The pads will analyse the heart and relay the information to the defibrillator where it will be determined if treatment is required.
About the Manufacturer
After breaking into the AED market in 2001 with the design and development of an ECG monitoring system, Korean medical company CU Medical Systems became a household defibrillator name when the British Heart Foundation recognised their work.
Their flagship defibrillator, the i-PAD SP1 AED was selected by the BHF to take part in a part funded scheme for AEDs across the UK.

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.
