Do children and adults need different AED electrode pads?

When available, infant/child or pediatric electrode pads (or an infant/child key) should be used when performing a rescue on children under 55lbs. If no pediatric options are available, use adult electrode pads instead (and, if necessary to avoid having the electrode pads touch each other, use the alternate front and back electrode pad placement for infants).
