With the Zoll AED Plus Intelligent Pediatric Capability, you can have peace-of-mind knowing that the AED can also be used in a pediatric cardiac arrest emergency. Zoll offers the option of pediatric pads that are needed for use with children. When cardiac arrest occurs in children up to 8 years of age and under 80 pounds, an exact type of defibrillator electrode is necessary. These Zoll AED Plus Pediatric Pads are recognized by the AED when connected and automatically proceed with a pediatric ECG. They also automatically adjust energy to pediatric levels.
As separate algorithms are used for adults and children, it is incredibly important to have the right set of pads for both groups. The Zoll AED Plus adjusts to the correct defibrillating energy level automatically so that suitable doses for children are delivered automatically.
These pads are designed directly for use with the AED plus, and anatomical diagrams on the product ensure proper placement of pads. They have a two year shelf life, which is one of the best in the industry.
