If the patient is under 25 kg (55 pounds) or 8 years old, but you do NOT have an
infant/child SMART Pads Cartridge:
DO NOT DELAY TREATMENT.
Remove all clothing from the torso, to bare both the chest and the
back.
Apply the OnSite using the adult pads cartridge, but place one pad in
the center of the chest between the nipples, and the other in the
center of the back (anterior-posterior).
If the patient is over 25 kg (55 pounds) or 8 years old, or if you are not sure of the
exact weight or age:
DO NOT DELAY TREATMENT.
Remove all clothing from the chest.
Apply the OnSite using the adult pads cartridge, and place the pads as
illustrated on the pads (anterior-anterior). Make sure the pads do not
overlap or touch each other.

WHEN EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES ARRIVE

When Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel arrive to care for the
patient, they may decide to apply another defibrillator to allow monitoring of the
patient. The SMART Pads should be removed from the patient prior to using
another defibrillator. EMS personnel may want a summary of the last-use data
stored in the OnSite. To hear the summary data, hold down the i-button until
the OnSite beeps.
NOTE: After the EMS team removes the SMART Pads from the patient,
remove the used pads cartridge, and insert a new pads cartridge before
returning the OnSite to service, to be sure it is ready for use.
* See Chapter 4, "After Using the HeartStart OnSite" for details about data storage.
