Defibrillator electrodes are uniquely different for children and adults -- and for good reason. That is why HeartSine has the Pad-Pak electrodes and batteries for adults and the Pediatric-Pak electrodes and batteries for children. These electrodes work for the Samaritan® PAD line of defibrillators.
Both electrode types are incorporating the batteries into one single-use cartridge. They have only one date to check and only one item to replace upon expiration of after use. Both the Pad-Pak and the Pediatric-Pak has a four-year life and provides 60 shocks or six hours of continuous monitoring.
Both adult and child electrodes are color-coded to avoid confusion. Pediatric-Pak electrodes are specific in that they deliver the appropriate shock for a small child's heart in cases of Sudden Cardiac Arrest. They have a smaller charge threshold and meant for children 55lbs or less (typically children under 8 years old).
The main two differences between the two defibrillator electrodes are:
- Adult - Pad-Pak: These are gray in color and are used for children over 8 years old and adults.
- Pediatric-Pak: These electrodes are pink and are to be used on children younger than 8, or weighing less than 55lbs.
