 As you can see there are 4 types. All of these electrode pads can be used with the Zoll AED Plus and the Zoll AED Pro and are interchangeable with the professional monitors/ defibrillators from Zoll that are used by ambulance services. All these sets can be used once only. After they have been removed from their sealed package they must be used straightaway.  Electrode pads have a limited shelf life because the conductivity of the adhesive gel that will decrease with time.

Zoll CPR/D Padz (are.8900-0800-01)
These pads are the preferred pads for the Zoll AEDs as they have been developed for maximum  convenience. Each pad has been made from one piece, which makes accurate positioning easier. These pads have a sensor that measure the depth of the chest compressions. The AED responds to these measurements by giving extra instructions such as ‘press harder’. Better chest compressions will help to increase the chances of survival. The CPR/D pads have a 5 years shelf life. This explains the higher purchase price compared to the other Zoll electrode pads. These electrode pads are  intended for adults.

Zoll CPR Stat Padz (art.8900-0400)
The CPR Stat Padz are not made out of one piece like the CPR/D pads, but are provided with a sensor. These pads are made for the aid worker who welcomes extra instructions but not one-piece pads. These electrodes may also prove advantageous when the AED is used regularly. Their price is lower, all functionality is preserved and their shorter shelf life (about 2 years) is less important. These sets are intended for adult uses.

Stat Padz II (art. 8900-0801-01 Zoll)
Stat Padz are sold widely to people who have no interest in the CPR-feedback of the Zoll AEDs; no sensor is attached to the pads and there is no feedback. This product is made for the very CPR experienced aid worker who would not benefit much from CPR feedback. The electrodes are only connected to each other through a cable and are therefore not made out of one piece. These are the most favourably priced electrode pads and have a shelf life of approximately two years.

Zoll Pedi Padz (art. 8900-0810-01)
The Pedi Padz are intended for children up to 8 years of age or about 25 kg of body weight.

These electrodes guide the energy level of the shock downwards in order to provide optimum therapeutic benefit to smaller bodies.  It is good practice to keep paediatric pads in the vicinity of the AED when it is kept  in a place where many children are present.
