HeartSine Samaritan Public Access Defibrillator 300/300P: Class I Recall
MedSun: Newsletter #79, December 2012

FDA MedWatch Safety Alert

HeartSine notified customers that certain Samaritan 300/300P PAD devices have been found to intermittently turn on and off, which may eventually deplete the battery. In addition and separately, certain Samaritan 300/300P PAD devices containing early versions of the battery management software may misinterpret a temporary drop in battery voltage as signaling a low battery, resulting in the device turning itself off.
