CONMED Corporation Issues a Voluntary Device Correction for PadPro and R2 Multi-function Defibrillation Electrodes

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – November 25, 2014 – Utica, New York – CONMED Corporation announces that it has notified customers of a Voluntary Urgent Device Correction for certain PadPro and R2 Multi-function Defibrillation Electrodes due to a connector compatibility issue with Philips FR3 and FRx Defibrillator Units.

These electrodes will not connect with Philips FR3 or FRx AED units. The FRx AED unit requires the pads to be pre-connected, and will issue a continuous alarm chirp to alert the user that the proper pads are not connected to the unit prior to use. The FR3, however, does not require pre-connection and the user will not discover the incompatibility issue until the AED must be used. This may result in a delay in therapy.

CONMED has not received any complaints or Medwatch reports of injuries associated with this Voluntary Device Correction.

The affected multi-function electrodes were distributed globally to distributors and medical facilities from March 1, 2012 through October 29, 2014.

CONMED alerted customers to this issue by letter on November 6, 2014 and is in the process of revising its labeling to clarify the use of these electrodes as incompatible with the Philips FR3 and FRx AED units. There are a total of 174,610 electrodes affected by this voluntary device correction. No product needs to be returned to CONMED.

All lot numbers of the following CONMED electrodes are affected:

Catalog Number 2001H – Adult Radiotransparent Electrode
Catalog Number 2001H-C – Adult Radiotransparent Electrode
Catalog Number 2001H-PC – Adult Radiotransparent Electrode
Catalog Number 2516H – Adult Radiotranslucent Electrode
Catalog Number 2516H-PC – Adult Radiotransparent Electrode
Catalog Number 2603H – Pediatric Radiotranslucent Electrode
Catalog Number 2602H – Mini Pediatric Radiotranslucent Electrode
Catalog Number 3115-1750 – Pediatric R2 Multifunction Electrode
Catalog Number 3115-1751 – R2 Multifunction Electrode

The Food and Drug Administration has classified this as a Class 1 Recall, the most serious recall where there is a reasonable risk of serious adverse health consequences or death.

I’d never been in a car accident in my whole life.I had originally hired an attorney, and he had dropped my case. So I came to the Accident Attorneys and they took on my case. They were amazing. They did a really good job. And I didn’t have to handle anything. In the end I’m very satisfied with my settlement.
