Action The firm, St. Jude Medical, sent an "IMPORTANT PRODUCT FIELD CORRECTION" letter dated September 22, 2011 to its customers by FedEx priority overnight service for planned receipt on September 23, 2011. The letter provides the customers with an explanation of the problem identified and an action to be taken. Customers were instructed that in order to prevent a false reading, a new programmer software version ( is available. This software when used to interrogate an Accent DR or Anthem CRT-P pacemaker will eliminate the potential for this anomaly to occur. The onetime upgrade is performed automatically on affected devices and will not change the operation of the implanted device. A St. Jude Medical Sales Representative will assist the customers in loading the new programmer software onto their Merlin programmer. Customers with questions or concerns, can contact their local St. Jude Medical representative or their Technical services department at (800) 722-3774.
