    LIFEPAK 1000 LIFEPAK 1000 defibrillator
    Physio-Control is launching a voluntary field action for the LIFEPAK 1000 defibrillator. The company has received reports where customers have attempted to use their LIFEPAK 1000 defibrillator and the device has shut down unexpectedly due to an intermittent connection between the battery and device electrical contacts. The company has determined that this intermittent connection is a result of wear and subsequent oxidation formation between the battery and device electrical contacts. When this occurs, the defibrillator may not be able to deliver lifesaving therapy. The company is contacting customers and advising them to perform Required Customer Actions, including removing and reinstalling the battery from their device(s). Click for details.

    Physio-Control has become aware of a potential device issue where the LIFEPAK 15 device may no longer be able to deliver defibrillation energy due to a potential failure of an internal component (Relay) installed on the Therapy Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA). Click for more details.
    Physio-Control has become aware of an issue whereby the LIFEPAK CR® Plus AED or LIFEPAK EXPRESS® AED may fail to initiate voice prompts when the ON/OFF button is pressed and the lid is opened due to an internal component (reed switch) that can intermittently become fixed in the closed position.

    LIFEPAK 1000 LIFEPAK 1000 Defibrillator
    Physio-Control has been made aware of several instances where a LIFEPAK 1000 AED could not provide required patient defibrillation therapy due to a depleted battery status.  We have learned this to be a result of batteries not being replaced when they have reached a low or very low state of charge as indicated on the Readiness Display in the device.  Our investigation has determined that confusing Operating Instructions and a device software malfunction are contributing to batteries not being replaced as required.
