Defibrillators recalled

March 16, 2012
Because automated external defibrillators save lives, more and more dealerships are making AEDs available in their stores, according to CATA allied member ComplyNet Corporation. 
However, the Food and Drug Administration has announced a recall of certain AEDs due to a defective component that could cause the unit to fail during a rescue attempt. The unit’s self-test might not detect the impending component failure, the FDA reports.
The AEDs were made and sold last year between July 1 and Dec. 20. Affected models include:
• Powerheart 9300A, 9300E, 9300P, 9390A and 9390E
• CardioVive 92532 and 92533
• CardioLife 9200G and 9231
• GE Responder and Responder Pro
• Nihon-Kohden AEDs
The FDA advises customers tocontact the manufacturers to return the devices for repair.
