Over 12,000 Faulty Defibrillators Recalled

1 comment

Cardiac Science Corp. has begun the voluntary recall of about 12,200 external defibrillators because they may not function under certain conditions, which could lead to patient death.

The problem was detected by Cardiac Science through their internal quality control system, and there have been no reports of this occurring in actual products in the field.

Models affected by the recall were manufactured between October 19, 2009 and January 15, 2010. Affected models include:

Powerheart

9300A

9300E

9300P

9390A

9390E

CardioVive

92532

CardioLife

9200G

9231

The Cardiac Science website features a database that allows consumers to determine if their defibrillator is affected by the recall.

Defective defibrillators will be replaced free of charge by Cardiac Science and are expected to start shipping on February 15th.

For additional information on the recall and how to replace a potentially defective model visit the Cardiac Science website here.
