Medtronic Division Recalls AED

Physio Control Inc. (Redmond, WA), a division of Medtronic Inc., has recalled its LifePak CR Plus Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The problem with the device is that the shock button--which is pressed to deliver a shock that restores a normal heart rhythm--is covered and "invisible." Customers have been instructed to stop using the AEDs, or remove and get rid of the shock button cover. They were also informed that they would be receiving replacement AEDs.
