FDA Warns Users About Faulty Components in 14 External Defibrillator Models
Date:4/27/2010

    "The FDA is issuing this notice so that users can take the proper steps necessary to assure they have access to safe and effective defibrillators," said Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., J.D., director of the FDA's Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
