  • Causa
    Philips has become aware of a specific issue with one of the electric components (a resistor) in approximately 660,000 aeds that were manufactured between 2002-2013. virtually all of these resistor-related failures were detected through the device’s automatic self-testing, alerting the user by issuing audible chirps. the in-use reliability of these aeds is greater than 99.9% when the aed determines a cardiac arrest victim is in need of shock therapy. however, in rare instances, self-tests might not identify a problem and the device might not deliver a shock when needed. to date, philips is aware of 13 instances in which this component failed during treatment, out of more than 45,000 uses in which shock therapy was delivered. in all these instances, the device delivered at least one shock before failure. among the cases for which the patient outcome is known, 5 patients died and 2 patients were successfully resuscitated and survived. importantly, when aeds are used on patients suffering sudden cardiac arrest, not all patients survive. in published studies of public access defibrillation to treat sudden cardiac arrest, the typical indicated survival rates are approximately 25% when an aed is used by a bystander versus 10% if an aed is not used.


  • Modelo / Serial
    Philips AED Models: HeartStart FRx, HeartStart Home, and HeartStart OnSite AEDs manufactured from September 2002 through February 2013 are included within the scope of this notification because they may contain the type of resistor that has previously been associated with a failure. The year of manufacture can be identified by the 2nd and 3rd characters in the serial number on the back of the AED in the range: Home/Onsite:(02)I-xxxxx through A 13(B-)xxxxx FRxB(04)L-xxxxx through B13(B-)xxxxx
