Special defibrillator pads for young ones under 8 years or under 55 pounds
Children who are under 8 years of age or who weigh less than 55 pounds (25 kg), including infants, should be treated using Infant/Child SMART Pads. These pads instruct the defibrillator to reduce the energy of its shock from 150 to 50 Joules (J), a more appropriate dosage. To make the Infant/Child Pads Cartridge easy to identify, it’s marked with an indication of patient weight and a teddy bear icon.
The pads are “SMART” because they work with the defibrillator to sense whether they have been removed from the cartridge and placed on the patient’s skin. Pictures on the pads illustrate the correct placement.
PURCHASE OF THIS PRODUCT REQUIRES A PRESCRIPTION.
Typical life span
