When little ones are in danger and unresponsive, quickly turn to this set of Philips HeartStart pads specially made for children under 8 years old or weighing less than 55 pounds: Infant/Child SMART Pads. It’s natural to be concerned about using pads that deliver a shock to a pediatric patient, but these Philips HeartStart pads guide you every step of the way, starting with voice commands that apply exclusively to infant and child patients. The pads also instruct your HeartStart OnSite AED to reduce the energy from its shock from 150 Joules to 50 Joules, a more appropriate level for the infant or child. How do I distinguish the Infant/Child pads set from the Adult set?
You’ll see the cartridge on the Infant/Child version of the pads has a teddy bear icon that makes it simple to distinguish from the Adult version. Also, check the indicator of patient weight on the cartridge to ensure it’s for a patient weighing less than 55 lbs. When do these particular Philips HeartStart pads expire?
Typically, 2 years after the date of purchase. Check the “use before” date on the package of your Infant/Child pads. If you’ve exceeded that expiration date, discard and replace the set with a new one. Much like Adult SMART Pads, we recommend that you purchase a 2nd set of Infant/Child SMART pads to store as a back-up for pediatric save situations.
