Description

Defibrillation pads are crucial components of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) and manual defibrillators used in emergency medical situations. These pads are adhesive and are placed on a person’s chest to deliver an electric shock to restore normal heart rhythm in the event of sudden cardiac arrest.

Here are some key points about defibrillation pads:

Adhesive Electrodes:

Defibrillation pads typically have adhesive electrodes that adhere to the patient’s chest. The adhesive helps to ensure proper contact and transmission of the electric shock to the heart.

Placement:

Proper pad placement is essential for effective defibrillation. Typically, one pad is placed on the upper right chest just below the collarbone, and the other is placed on the left side of the chest below the nipple line. Some AEDs have visual or voice prompts to guide users through the correct pad placement.

Compatibility:

Defibrillation pads are designed to be compatible with specific AED models or manual defibrillators. It’s important to use pads that are recommended by the manufacturer of the defibrillator.

Pre-gelled Design:

Many defibrillation pads come pre-gelled, which means they have a conductive gel already applied. This gel facilitates the conduction of electrical impulses, ensuring that the electric shock is delivered effectively to the heart.

Disposable:

Defibrillation pads are typically disposable, meaning they are for single-use only. After use, they are replaced with new pads to maintain effectiveness and hygiene.

Paediatric Pads:

Some AEDs come with paediatric pads or have paediatric settings that allow the use of special pads for children. Paediatric pads have a smaller size and a reduced energy level to suit the needs of smaller bodies.

Storage and Maintenance:

Defibrillation pads need to be stored properly, usually in a sealed pouch, to maintain their adhesive properties and conductivity. Regularly check the expiration date and integrity of the pads to ensure their effectiveness when needed.

Instructions for Use:

AEDs provide clear instructions on when and how to apply the defibrillation pads. Automated systems often include visual and voice prompts to guide users through the process, making it user-friendly for individuals with minimal training.

Emergency Response:

Defibrillation pads are a critical component of the chain of survival in cases of sudden cardiac arrest. Quick application of defibrillation pads, along with effective CPR, increases the chances of survival.

Training:

Proper training in the use of defibrillators, including pad placement, is essential for individuals likely to encounter emergency situations. Many organizations provide basic life support (BLS) and AED training.

Remember that defibrillation is most effective when administered as early as possible after the onset of cardiac arrest. Prompt action, including calling emergency services, starting CPR, and using an AED with defibrillation pads, can significantly improve the chances of survival for someone experiencing sudden cardiac arrest.
