Defibtech has initiated a voluntary Class I recall of DDU-100 series semi-automatic external defibrillators (AEDs) sold under the Lifeline AED and ReviveR AED brand names, including 65,885 AEDs distributed in the US.

The corrective action refers to two possible conditions, which in rare cases may cause an affected AED to cancel shock during the charging process and not provide therapy, which may result in failure to resuscitate the patient.

Most cases were reported in environments of greater than 95% relative humidity or condensing conditions.

The AEDs affected by the recall have been delivered to fire departments, emergency medical services, health clubs, schools and other organisations.
