People and organisations should check if they have the defibrillator model, LIFEPAK 1000 Automatic External Defibrillators (AED), because a technical fault with some of them means they may not deliver an electric shock to the heart to someone who is in cardiac arrest.
This issue could potentially affect all LIFEPAK 1000 devices. There are 10,068 devices in the UK.
The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has issued a Medical Device Alert.
The fault is due to intermittent connection between the battery and device contacts because of wear and subsequent corrosion between both components. This could fail to deliver a shock to resuscitate a patient.
If your device powers off unexpectedly, either during inspection or during patient treatment, immediately remove and reinstall your existing battery to restore power to the device. If power is not restored, you will need to purchase a replacement battery.
