- SavePads Mini
Paediatric electrode pads are an essential piece of equipment if your defibrillator is to be placed in an environment where it could be needed to help a child who has suffered a cardiac arrest.
As well as being a handy extra to have with your AED, paediatric pads ensure you are protecting the lives of both adults and children who might suffer a cardiac arrest.
The Primedic HeartSave SavePads Mini reduce the joule output from the defibrillator to a safe level for children and can be used with the HeartSave PAD, HeartSave AS and HeartSave AED models.
- SavePads Mini reduce the joule output from the AED, ensuring that a defibrillator can be used safely to help a child
- Can be used with the HeartSave PAD, AS and AED models
- Protective packaging ensures the electrodes are kept clean and secure before use
- Super sticky adhesive means that once the electrodes are placed, they will not move during treatment
- Clear and easy-to-understand images on the reverse to help any untrained first responders place the pads correctly
How to use
To ensure a cardiac arrest patient has the greatest survival chances, time is of the essence. If cardiopulmonary resuscitation is performed and an AED is used within 3-5 minutes, survival chances increase from 6% to 74%.
The electrodes packaging is easy to open and once applied to the patient, they will immediately begin analysing the heart to determine whether shock therapy is required.
Paediatric pads will be registered by the defibrillator and allow for a reduced joule output to be provided, ensuring the child’s safety when administering treatment.

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.
