AED Brands offers Cardiac Science Infant/Child Pediatric Pads for Cardiac Science automated external defibrillators (AEDs) which work with all 9200 and 9300 series AEDs, including the Powerheart® AED G3 Pro®, the Powerheart AED G3 and the Powerheart AED G3 Plus. It is important to use infant or pediatric AED pads on children under 8 years old or 55 pounds or less because the pads reduce the energy delivered to the victim during defibrillation. It is important to remember that AED pads can expire just like AED batteries, therefore it is necessary to have extra Cardiac Science Pediatric AED pads on hand and to conduct regular maintenance inspections on your AED unit and all its components. If you care for children through an elementary school, church program or daycare facility, it is necessary to include them in your AED program’s emergency medical rescue plans. Children do not suffer sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) as often as adults do, but nearly 4% of children do. That is why Cardiac Science and AED brands want to stress the importance of having extra pediatric AED pads on hand. Keep the children in your care as safe as you can.
