Philips OnSite Infant Child AED Pads are for use with the Philips HeartStart OnSite Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Recommended for places where children gather, the OnSite pediatric AED pads, or infant child AED pads, reduce the energy delivered to the patient. CPR/AED guidelines recommend that infant child pads be used with the AED if the child is 8 years of age or younger, or if the child weighs less than 55 lbs. Philips OnSite Infant Child AED pads meet these requirements. Children do not suffer from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) as often as adults do, but it is estimated that nearly 4% of all SCA victims are children under the age of eight. If you run a daycare facility, work in an elementary school, or belong to a church with children’s programs, it is important to include these smaller, younger American citizens in your AED program. An important item to remember in regards to AED pads, is that, like AED batteries, they have a shelf life and will eventually expires. Therefore, it is necessary to conduct regular maintenance inspections on all the components of your AED unit and make sure that you have extra Philips OnSite Infant Child AED pads on hand for your HeartStart OnSite defibrillator.
