|Issue: Cardiac Science is conducting a voluntary recall of a limited number of automated external defibrillators (AEDs) manufactured between July 1, 2011 and December 30, 2011. The affected AEDs contain a circuit board manufactured with a component that may fail unexpectedly due to a supplier manufacturing defect. If the component were to fail during a rescue attempt, the AED may not deliver defibrillation therapy. This issue was detected at the Cardiac Science factory through our standard quality control processes. We have no reports of this issue impacting a rescue. This action is being conducted with the knowledge of the appropriate Regulatory Agencies.|
