Your electrode pads are a vital piece of equipment to go with your AED to ensure the safe delivery of a defibrillation shock to the victim of a cardiac arrest. As each pair of pads is single use only, we advise always to keep a spare set to hand to ensure your device is always rescue ready and can deliver a life-saving shock.
As these electrodes can be pre-connected, your AED will automatically include them as it performs its regular self-checks, alerting you to any problems so you are able to rectify them before the device is needed. To ensure your pads are always ready to go, we advise you sign up to our free reminder service which will notify you when your electrodes are due for expiry, giving you plenty of time to replace your electrodes before they become unusable.
These electrodes are designed with efficiency and so have included helpful diagrams on the packaging of the pads to allow for quick and accurate placement. An easy-to-peel top corner and adhesive ensure the pads stay secure on the patient and can get to work in analysing the heart rhythm of the victim to determine whether a shock is required.
