MHRA issues faulty defibrillator warning

Defibrillators manufactured by Medtronic may fail to work because of a faulty internal cable, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has warned.

Users of Medtronic Physio-Control Lifepak CR Plus automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) should test their devices, by verifying that the AED powers on and voice prompts begin when the device is switched on.

If the device does not turn on, users should contact the manufacturer on 01923 234512, the MHRA says.
