Have you or a loved one suffered an injury due to Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads?
Defibrillators are devices that help correct heart rhythm defects. They are used to treat the heart conditions of cardiac arrhythmia, pulseless ventricular tachycardia, and ventricular fibrillation.
A defibrillator works by sending electrical energy to the patient’s heart. This energy interrupts the irregular rhythm of the patient’s heart. Once the irregular rhythm is interrupted, the heart beat returns to a normal pace.
The defibrillator is not implanted directly on the heart. Instead wires or leads travel from the defibrillator to the heart. When a heart irregularity is detected the defibrillator sends a pulse of electrical current down the leads.
Problems with the Medtronic Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads
As a defibrillator manufacturer, Medtronic has produced a number of defective defibrillator leads. Medtronic defibrillator models 6930, 6931, 6948, and 6949 leads may fracture. This fracturing can lead to erratic shocks or shutdown of the defibrillation unit. If the unit does shut down, dangerous complications could potentially ensue.
The problematic leads were manufactured between September of 2004 and October of 2007. If you believe you have a recalled defibrillator lead, it is crucial that you see your physician immediately.
If you had a Medtronic Sprint Fidelis defibrillator lead installed, contact a personal injury attorney to evaluate your potential claim.
