CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pad Bundle (2 sets)
- Smaller pad surface designed for specific use on a younger cardiac arrest patient
- Clear instructions on the packaging to help the first responder place the pads correctly prior to use
- Sticky adhesive ensures that once the user has placed the pads on the patient, they will not move during treatment
- Designed to be pre-connected, ensuring that the pads are rescue-ready at all times once connected to the defibrillator
- Paediatric pads help to control the defibrillator’s joule output, reducing the level to a suitable one for children
As an alternative to using the switch-mode option on the i-PAD SP1 defibrillator, having paediatric pads offers the user the option to use smaller pads when a child has suffered a cardiac arrest and they need immediate treatment from a defibrillator.
They could also be seen to be the correct choice if the defibrillator is to be placed in a school, where having a defibrillator ready to assist a child should they suffer a cardiac arrest is vital.

How do I know that the CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pad Bundle suits me?
The CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pad Bundle is for paediatric use, so it is specifically designed to deliver treatment to children under 8 or weighing less than 25 kg. Sudden Cardiac Arrests can occur at any time and to anyone, including children. Each year, an estimated 270 children die due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest at school. These electrodes may be a good option if you’re looking for pads to use in an environment where children are present, such as a school or childcare centre.
Can the CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads be used on adults?
No, you can’t use the CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pads on adults, as they are designed specifically to be used on children. You must use the correct pads when using a defibrillator on someone, as adults and children require varying levels of shock. An adult in Sudden Cardiac Arrest cannot receive treatment via the paediatric pads as they cannot administer a high shock level. This could result in the casualty failing to receive adequate treatment. Paediatric pads, like those included in the CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Bundle, should be used on children under eight or if they weigh less than 25 kg.
What are the key features of the CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pad Bundle?
The CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pad Bundle is intended for younger patients. The pads are packaged with detailed instructions, so any responder can correctly attach the pads regardless of medical training. The pads have a sticky adhesive to ensure they do not move once they have been placed on the child’s chest.
What is SMART Technology?
The acronym SMART stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. It works by reading the patient's cardiac rhythm and changing the energy level before shocking the casualty. The CU Medical iPAD SP1 Child Electrode Pad Bundle has SMART technology designed to improve the survival rate of someone in Sudden Cardiac Arrest.
