Manufacturer Narrative
Upon receipt at our post market quality assurance laboratory, it was noted that the device was returned in the original sterile packaging. An evaluation of the device was performed. Review of the device memory confirmed that a low voltage alert, code 1003, was recorded and that the device recorded low temperature readings prior to setting the low voltage alert. If this model device is stored in environments where temperatures can drop below the recommended storage temperature, battery voltage readings that are low enough to set a low voltage alert may result. This appears to be the case with this device. The battery did recover after the device was removed from the cold.
 
Event Description
It was reported that this cardiac resynchronization therapy pacemaker (crt-p) recorded a pre-implant 1003 code indicative of battery voltage too low for the projected remaining capacity, presumed to be due to cold weather. The device was not cleared for implant as data analysis indicated the device had a higher than usual left ventricular (lv) pacing threshold programmed. There is no patient involvement at the time of this issue.
