Do you know what Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads? To tell you the truth I have no idea what it is until I did my research online. I found out that it was Manufactured by Medtronic, Inc.(the world's largest medical technology company). Sprint Fidelis Defibrillator Leads are specific models or cardiac electrodes that connect an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) or cardiac resynchronization therapy defibrillator (CRT-D) directly to the heart. This are devices that protect patients when life-threatening heart rhythms occur.
Due to Defective Defibrillator Leads the FDA considered the removal action to be a medical device recall. The Medtronic Defibrillator Recall issued after five patient deaths have been linked to the devices. The Medtronic said that the defibrillator lead can fracture and may have been a contributing factor in the deaths. They voluntarily removed in the market the Sprint Fidelis defibrillator lead. The Defibrillator Lead Recall of this said models are as follow:
Sprint Fidelis 6930
Sprint Fidelis 6931
Sprint Fidelis 6948
Sprint Fidelis 6949
