Medical Device Safety and Recalls: Physio-Control Inc. Recalls LIFEPAK 1000 Defibrillator Due to an Electrical Issue Which May Cause the Device to Shut Down Unexpectedly

FDA Logo
Physio-Control is recalling the LIFEPAK 1000 due to an electrical issue which may cause the device to shut down unexpectedly during patient treatment. Physio-Control has determined that wear and oxidation formation between the battery and device electrical contacts may cause power interruptions. This may prevent the device from delivering the electrical shock needed to revive a patient in cardiac arrest. A delay in delivering this therapy could result in serious patient injury such as permanent organ damage, brain injury, or death.
