This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has echoed the worldwide recall of defibrillators manufactured by Access CardioSystems (ACS). The recall affects the Access AED, Access PAD, and Access ALS devices with serial numbers in the range 075180-084760. The MHRA reports two forms of potential failure, relating to the devices' inability to deliver more than one defibrillation shock and problems associated with the unexpected activation of the device (see Clinica No 1133, p 16). UK healthcare providers are urged to contact RL Dolby & Co (Stirling, Scotland), the UK distributor of the affected devices, for further details.
