package contains one pair of adult defibrillation
pads for use with the Defibtech Lifeline AED. These pads are for adult use
only (8 years or older). Pads should be stored connected to the
Defibtech AED. Extra pads can be stored in the available carrying case. Pad package
has a two-year shelf life.
The DDU-100 AED,
LIFELINE AED Semi-automatic Defibrillator, uses two self-adhesive
defibrillation/monitoring pads to monitor ECG signals and, if necessary,
to deliver defibrillation energy to the patient. These pads (also known
as electrodes) are provided in a single-use, disposable package. Do not allow defibrillation pads to touch each other, or to touch other
ECG electrodes, lead wires, dressings, transdermal patches, etc. Such
contact can cause electrical arcing and patient skin burns during
defibrillation and may divert defibrillating energy away from the heart.
defibrillation/monitoring pads are intended for one time use only. The
pads must be replaced after each use or if the package has been damaged.
The DDU-100 AED
defibrillation/monitoring pads are supplied in a sealed pouch with the
connector and part of the cable exposed. The DDU-100 AED is designed to
be stored with the electrode cable already installed. This allows the
pads to be stored in a pre-connected state for rapid deployment during
Caution: DO NOT
remove the defibrillation pads from the sealed package until the pads
are to be used. The packaging should be opened only immediately prior to
use, otherwise the pads may dry out and become non-functional.
First, check to
ensure that the pad package has not expired. Pads past their expiration
date should not be used and should be discarded. Insert the connector
end of the defibrillation pad cable into the pads connector port on the
corner of the DDU-100 AED as shown. Press the pads connector in firmly
until it is fully seated in the unit.
The pad package can
then be stored in the pad storage slot in the back of the DDU-100 AED.
After connecting the pads connector to the unit, push the pad package,
with the pictures on the package facing up and out, rounded end first,
into the pad holder compartment on the back of the AED. When the pad
pack is fully inserted, press the pad cable into the groove in the back
of the unit to hold it in place and tuck any excess cable behind the pad
Caution: The pads are intended for one time use
only and must be discarded after use or if the package has been opened.
5.2.5 Checking Pad
and Battery Pack Expiration Dates
It is important that
the patient pads and the battery packs not be used past their expiration
