Zoll Medical defibrillator alert

This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet

Executive Summary

Firm 1warns customers Feb. 12 about a battery problem identified in about 180,000 of its AED Plus automated external defibrillators that may prevent the AEDs from delivering shocks during sudden cardiac arrest, Zoll announces April 2. The company says batteries used in AEDs manufactured before Feb. 12 may fail to work properly after a long period without use; the product's self-test software also fails to detect defective batteries. Zoll told customers to replace batteries that have been in use longer than three years and replace them at three-year intervals thereafter; it will offer special pricing to compensate for shorter-than-expected battery life
