Faulty heart defibrillators warning

21st November 2012

The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency has warned that more than 1,300 emergency heart devices in public places in the UK like shopping centres may not work.

It says that some of the defibrillator machines, which are used to give life-saving treatment to patients having a cardiac arrest, may have a battery fault and has urged first aiders to check their samaritan PAD 300/300P defibrillators. There are concerns that the devices can turn on or off when not in use and drain the battery.
