HeartSine Technologies, Ltd. Recall of Some PDU400 Defibrillators
BELFAST, Northern Ireland, October 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
On October 4, 2013, HeartSine Technologies, Ltd. initiated a voluntary recall of some
older PDU 400 personal defibrillators. The recall is due to a self-test defect that may
affect the ability of the Device to deliver therapy to a patient in a sudden cardiac
arrest (SCA) event. Rather than emitting a timely alarm warning that the device has
insufficient battery, it can appear to be ready for use, but when called upon to deliver
therapy the device may not have sufficient capacity to do so.
The older PDU 400 devices affected by this issue have serial numbers between:
08P00001003 to 11P00007347
These devices were sold between May 2008 and April 2011. No other PDU 400 devices are
affected by the present recall.
HeartSine is contacting customers with affected device to arrange a replacement device
Customers with PDU 400 devices with serial number falling within the sequence listed
above are asked to contact HeartSine Technologies Ltd. by telephone 00800 12125555 or by
email on firstname.lastname@example.org to organize replacement of the affected devices.
