Pediatric electrodes are designed for use with the AED Plus (sold separately). Because they carry a lower charge, these electrodes should be used when the automated external defibrillator is applied to a child up to 8 years or infant in sudden cardiac arrest. When the pediatric electrodes are connected, the AED Plus recognizes that a pediatric rescue is in progress. With ECG analysis developed specifically for a pediatric heart rate, coupled with appropriate defibrillation energy levels, the AED Plus can handle pediatric rescues. Packaging includes a graphic illustration of how to apply the electrodes.
