Welch Allyn AED-10 defibrillators recalled

Nov 07, 2007

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of Welch Allyn AED-10 automatic external defibrillators due to possibly defective circuit boards.

The FDA said the recalled defibrillators carried part numbers 970302E, 970308E, 970310E and 970311E.

The devices are used by emergency or medical personnel and by consumers to treat cardiopulmonary arrest. The devices analyze an unconscious patient's heart rhythm and automatically deliver an electrical shock, if needed, to restore normal heart rhythm.

The company said it discovered some of the recalled defibrillators might fail or produce an unacceptable delay in analyzing a patient's heart rhythm.

The company said it plans to replace all affected units.

Consumers with questions can contact Welch Allyn at 800-462-0777.
