Type: Product Recall/Alert
Publisher: Food and Drug Administration
Philips is recalling the HeartStart MRx Defibrillator due to a defect in the device's Gas Discharge Tube. The Gas Discharge Tube has micro cracks which allows internal gasses to escape and causes the tubes to not function as expected. This also permits an electrical current surge to cross the device's designated resistors, which will damage the resistors and prevent the device from working while in automated external defibrillator mode.
