Infant/Child Reduced-Energy Defibrillator Pads
- Infant/Child Reduced-Energy Defibrillator Pads enable minimally trained responders to safely and promptly defibrillate infants and children under 8 years of age or 55 pounds.
- These special infant/child pads contain electronics that attenuate, or reduce, the energy of the defibrillator's shock from 150 to 50 Joules, an appropriate dosage of SMART Biphasic therapy for infants and small children. And the FR2-series defibrillator can evaluate children's heart rhythms with outstanding accuracy for appropriate shock/no-shock decisions.
- The pads' design was carefully thought out to ensure that, even for the most inexperienced user under the most stressful circumstances, it is instantly obvious that these pads are for children and infants only. This helps ensure that the correct pads are chosen when you need to be prepared to treat both adults and children.
- The packaging, graphics, and pink teddy bear-shaped connector clearly communicate pediatric use. *Tang, et al.
