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. Continue reading
