Infant/Child SMART Pads Cartridge
Children under 8 years of age or weighing less than 55 pounds (25 kg), including infants, should be treated using HeartStart Infant/Child SMART Pads, if available. These pads instruct the defibrillator to provide voice instructions appropriate for a pediatric patient, and to reduce the energy of its shock from 150 to 50 Joules (J), a more appropriate dosage. The Infant/Child Pads cartridge is marked with an indication of patient weight and with a teddy bear icon for easy identification. Purchase of this product requires a prescription.
