We conclude that to minimize TTI, preapplied self-adhesive electrode pads should be at least 5.8 cm in diameter when used for pediatric patients. The 5.8 cm pad was easily applied to infants. Older children could easily accommodate the 7 cm pad. Therefore, we recommend a pad diameter of 5.8 cm for infants < 1 year, and a pad diameter of 7 cm for older children.
