Warning issued over defibrillator faults

The government has issued an alert that thousands of defibrillators placed at schools, railway stations and town centres could fail to work when needed because of a design fault.

The warning urges people to check the functioning of two widely distributed models made by the same US manufacturer, Physio-Control, with approximately 2,570 devices, either LIFEPAK CR PLUS or LIFEPAK EXPRESS defibrillators, thought to be affected.

Many defibrillators have been installed in public spaces by local authorities, and a LGA spokesman urged people to follow the advice from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency to make device checks.
