Cardiac Science Corporation Automated External Defibrillators
Cardiac science corporation automated external defibrillators (AEDs) manufactured by Cardiac Science Corporation are part of a class 1 recall because of the units failing. AEDs are used to treat persons who are believed to have had a heart attack, and/or found unresponsive. The AED will detect heart rhythms and tell responders whether the victim needs an electric shock delivered that could possibly normalize heart electrical impulses responsible for heart muscle contractions. Failure of the AED to operate properly could result in deaths to cardiac arrest victims who are already in serious trouble.
The names and model numbers of the faulty leads are:
Cardiac Science Powerheart 9300A, 9300E, 9300P, 9390A; CardioVive 92532, 92533; Cardio Life Models 9200G, 9231; GE Responder; Responder Pro AED; Nihon-Kohden AED
These affected lots were distributed from July 2011 through December 2011.
