i-PAD SP1 Adult Electrode Pads
i-PAD SP1 Adult Electrode Pads
Product Code 63124
- 1 set of i-PAD SP1 Adult Pads
Known as SMART electrode pads, these can be used on both adults and children; with a flick of the mode switch, the shock delivered will change to be suitable for the victim.
All defibrillator electrode pads are designed to be one-use only. Therefore, having an extra pair to hand could make all the difference in the important minutes following a cardiac arrest.
Electrode pads, whilst being vitally important to the rescue process, are unfortunately easy to damage once removed from their protective packet. So it makes sense to have a spare pair with your AED or first aid kit to remove the pressure placed on having just a single set.
The bonus with the i-Pad SP1 Adult Electrode Pads is that they can be used on both adults and children alike.
- SMART electrode pad technology means that the pads can be used on both adults and children, at just the flick of a switch
- Protective foil packaging ensures the pads are kept clean and secure prior to use
- Pre-connected by design, saving valuable time in an emergency
- Sticky adhesive ensures once electrodes are placed on patient, they will not move during treatment
How to use
The i-Pad SP1 Adult Electrode Pads are known as SMART pads, as they can be adapted for use on both adults and children alike, without the need for additional equipment or electrodes.
On the defibrillator unit, you simply switch the device to either adult or child setting dependant on the age of the patient. Paediatric pads are used on children when they are aged between 1 and 8 years old.
Once connected, the defibrillator will begin to analyse the heart of the patient to determine whether treatment is required. If it is a child patient, the defibrillator will reduce the joule output to a suitable level.
About the Manufacturer
CU Medical Systems are fairly new to the defibrillator manufacturing industry after joining the market in 2001, when they developed an ECG monitoring system for AEDS. They have now grown into one of the market leaders due to their sleek and impressively designed i-PAD SP1 defibrillator.
Why is it so good? At the flick of a switch you can treat either an adult or child who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest and you don’t need to have paediatric pads to hand either. The standard Adult pads will do.

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.
