St. Jude Medical Defibrillator

The FDA has issued a Class 1 recall on several of St. Jude Medical’s defibrillators implanted in the last 5 years. Nearly 400,000 devices manufactured by St. Jude Medical Inc. before May 2015 feature a faulty battery design that makes them prone to short circuiting, which can cause total battery failure in as little as 24 hours. The devices are supposed to provide three months’ warning of potential battery failure to patients. If the battery dies prematurely, the device will be unable to deliver life-saving shocks, which could lead to patient death.

Serious Health Risks
Symptoms of a short-circuited battery may include:
• Lightheadedness
• Dizziness
• Loss of consciousness
• Chest pain
• Shortness of breath

You May Be Entitled To Compensation
If you had a St. Jude Medical Defibrillator implanted which was replaced or is scheduled to be replaced, or a loved one was injured or passed away due to early battery failure, you may be entitled to compensation.
