The CRM Product News Letter gave an overview of the content of the Product Update and stated the web location for finding the complete Product Update. The Product Update identified affected devices, gave an overview of normal charge time behavior at mid-life for specific ICD and CRT-D devices. The letter also described the atypical charge time behavior, projected rate of mid-life display of replacement indicators and Patient Management Considerations. ****** Prophylactic replacement of these devices prior to ERI is not recommended. As stated in the Product Update, "Devices that have triggered charge time-based ERI or EOL during mid-life have several months, and in most cases more than one year of remaining battery voltage and capacity, which allows the devices in this pattern to continue to provide brady and LV pacing and maximum energy shocks. However, if ERI or EOL is triggered, device replacement should be scheduled."*****Recalled units only cover devices implanted prior to July 2005****
