HeartSine has taken an innovative approach to maintenance items by incorporating the AED electrodes and batteries into one single-use cartridge called the Pad-Pak™. The advantage to the Pad-Pak is that there is only one date to monitor and only one item to replace upon expiration or after use.
The Pad-Pak is suitable for use on adults and children. For children younger than eight years or weighing less than 55 lbs (25 kg), HeartSine offers the Pediatric-Pak™. The HeartSine PAD’s built-in intelligence and unique Pediatric Pad-Pak ensure the appropriate energy level is delivered for children.
Each Pad-Pak/Pediatric-Pak has an industry-first four-year life, and provides 60 shocks or six hours of continuous monitoring. When battery power is down to ten shocks or less, the HeartSine samaritan PAD emits an audible beep.
Two versions of the Pad-Pak are available:
- Adult Pad-Pak, grey in colour, for use on patients from eight years old to adults weighing more than 55 lbs (25 kg).
- Pediatric-Pak, pink in colour, for use on patients younger than eight years of age weighing less than 55 lbs (25 kg) - see other product.
