Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Philips is recalling HeartStart Home and OnSite (HS1) automated external defibrillators (AEDs) because one or both contact pins may be contaminated by residue from the soldering process. This contamination could prevent an adequate connection between the pads cartridge and the AED. If poor contact between the pads cartridge and AED occurs, the device may be unable to deliver therapy in an emergency.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
