For use with the Heartsine Samaritan Pad range, this handy PAD PAK includes both the electrode pads and battery in one easy cartridge.
Defibrillator manufacturer Heartsine have taken a fresh approach to the battery and electrode pads by incorporating them both together, reducing the amount of maintenance required on their range of AEDs.
This makes using the Heartsine Samaritan PAD-Pak incredibly easy to use and operate, whilst each PAD-Pak has an industry leading four year battery life, providing 60 shocks or six hours of continuous monitoring.
- One single-use cartridge contains AED batteries and electrode pads
- Only one item to be replaced after use/expiry
- Battery life for up to 60 shocks/6 hours of monitoring
- When down to 10 shocks or less – emits warning prompt
How to use
With the battery and the electrode pads connected, the ease of use in terms of maintenance has greatly improved. There is only one date to monitor with the Heartsine Samaritan PAD-Pak, as both the pads and battery will expire at the same time if they remain unused.
The electrode pads, when required, have diagrams on the reverse side helping untrained first responders to place the pads correctly in an emergency and with a super stick adhesive, you can be sure that once they are attached, they won’t move in an emergency.

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.
