HeartSine Samaritan PAD 500P Defibrillator Recall

Risk that the device may fail to deliver the required therapy.

The software in the Samaritan PAD 500P may miscalculate the CPR rate of compression per minute being administered to the patient.

As a result the rescuer may be incorrectly advised by the device to “Push Slower” when, in fact, the CPR rate is at an acceptable level.
