Defibrillator Electrode, Physio Infant/Child Reduced Energy
For use only with LIFEPAK® 500 Biphasic AED with pink connector or LIFEPAK 1000 defibrillator, LIFEPAK EXPRESS AED or LIFEPAK CR Plus AED. For use on children less than 8 years of age or less than 55 lbs.
Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrode Pads – use only with LIFEPAK® 500 AEDs with a pink connector (standard on AEDs built after 8/9/02 More Info) or any LIFEPAK® CR Plus, LIFEPAK® EXPRESS, or LIFEPAK® 1000 defibrillator. Intended for use on children up to 8 years of age or 25kg (55lb).
The Infant/Child Reduced Energy Electrode Pads are smaller than adult defibrillation electrode pads. The electrode pads reduce the energy dose that is delivered to the patient by a factor of four. If the AED is set up to deliver a dosage of 200, 300, 360J using adult defibrillation electrode pads, the dose will be approximately 50, 75, 86J with the Infant/Child Reduced Energy Electrode Pads.
To extend a community heart-safe program to children eight and under, order the Infant/Child Reduced Energy Defibrillation Electrode Pads. While few patients will ever be candidates for this therapy, the Infant/Child Reduced Energy Electrode Pads offer the opportunity to save many years of someone’s life.
Biphasic LIFEPAK® 500 AEDs that do not have pink connector plugs (inner lining on the AED’s electrode receptacle) can be upgraded to accept the low-energy electrodes
