AbstractA defibrillator paddle includes a pediatric electrode of relatively small size attached to a mounting portion of a housing having a handle. An adult electrode assembly is releasably mounted to the mounting portion of the housing by a quick release latch mechanism. The adult electrode assembly includes an adult electrode larger than the pediatric electrode. The pediatric electrode nests within the adult electrode assembly and a spring makes electrical contact between the electrodes when the adult electrode assembly is mounted.
