Caution Urged on Powerheart and CardioVive Automated External Defibrillators
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting users of certain Powerheart and CardioVive automated external defibrillators that these devices may malfunction unexpectedly. This can cause a failure to deliver the electric shocks that are needed to treat sudden cardiac arrest or arrhythmias.
The United States Fire Administration recommends everyone should have a comprehensive fire protection plan that includes smoke alarms, residential sprinklers, and practicing a home fire escape plan.
