Failure Risk Prompts Recall of Samaritan 300/300P Defibrillators

Posted on September 17, 2013

Samaritan 300/300P PAD public access defibrillators are being recalled by HeartSine technologies due to a possible failure issue that could lead to a delay in a person getting needed therapy for cardiac arreast.  The issues associated with the devices are twofold:  first, the items can randomly turn on and off, a condition that may deplete the battery, and second, some defibrillators may turn off because an early version of the software thinks a battery is low when in fact there has simply been a drop in voltage.  The defibrillators were produced and made available around the world between August 2004 and December 2010.  Owners are being asked to check that the devices are working and to get in touch with HeartSine for a new product or an upgrade kit.
