i-PAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads
i-PAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads
Product Code 63126
- 1 set of i-PAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads
For use exclusively with the i-PAD SP1 defibrillator, these Child Electrodes are smaller than the standard SMART electrode, ensuring the child receives a safe amount of electricity when given defibrillation.
Offering an alternative to the i-PAD SP1 defibrillators mode switch button, the i-PAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads are an essential tool when looking to provide treatment to a child who has suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.
Having a spare pair of electrode pads with your AED or first aid kit might prove to be a lifesaving decision, as although they are vitally important and well protected prior to the rescue process, once removed from their protective packaging, they are open to the elements and can easily become dirty or damaged.
Once damaged, electrode pads will not perform as well, therefore having multiple sets to hand removes the pressure from having just the single set of electrodes.
- For use exclusively with the i-PAD SP1 defibrillator
- Clear images on the electrodes help the first responder to place the pads correctly
- Super sticky adhesive ensures that once pads are placed, they will not move during treatment
- Paediatric pads reduce the joule output provided by the defibrillator to a level which is suitable for a child
- Pre-connected by design, ensuring the first responder spends less time setting up the AED during the rescue process
How to use
The i-PAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads offer an alternative option to the switch function on the i-PAD SP1 defibrillator, and means that you can have pre-connected paediatric electrode pads ready to work at a moment’s notice.
Once removed from their protective packaging, they should be placed on the patient as per the instructions on the electrodes. The electrodes will then begin to analyse the heart and send information to the defibrillator to determine whether treatment is necessary.

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.
