Class I Recall of Skintact DF29N Multi-function Defibrillation Electrodes by Leonhard Lang

PUBLISHED: Oct 14, 2016

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is informing healthcare professionals that the Leonhard Lang defibrillation electrode is being recalled due to a connector compatibility issue with the Welch Allyn AED model 10. The user may not be able to connect the electrodes to the defibrillator when a shock is needed. This may result in a delay in delivering the electrical therapy needed to revive a patient in cardiac arrest.

A delay in therapy could result in serious patient injury and/or death.
