How to Change Pads on the ZOLL AED Plus with Blaire

Blaire: This is Blaire with Coro Medical, home of AED.US, and today we’re going to go over how to change the pads in the ZOLL AED Plus.

CPR-D Padz & Stat Padz:

There are two types of pads that work with this unit: one being the CPR-D Padz that give the CPR feedback; those have a five year expiration, then there’s the ZOLL Stat-Padz that have a two year expiration.

Changing the Padz:

Today we are going to go over how to change the CPR-D Padz, the ones that come standard with the unit. To change those pads, you’re just gonna pop the lid off the AED and pull up on the cable. The expiration date is listed in two places on these pads: one on this side and one on the convenience tab. This is so you don’t have to take the lid off every time you want to see the expiration date. Now, to replace those pads, get the new set, plug them back into the AED. It can be a little tricky to get this lid on sometimes, but if it takes you a couple times its ok. You just want to put the convenience tab back through the slit in the top of the lid. Make sure all the cables are tucked in and you’ll hear it snap. If you have any questions or want to go over purchasing options, please feel free to give us a call at 800-695-1209 or feel free to go online at Thanks for watching!
