Why the product is recalled

Certain M5072A Infant/Child SMART Pads Cartridges (LOT Number Y111220-01) contain an incorrect image underneath the PULL handle on the protective cover that shows the pad placement for an adult’s chest (Figure 2).

The image on the protective cover should show a drawing of pad placement for a child’s chest and back (Figure 1).  The image is correct on the outer pouch that contains the infant/child pads cartridge (Figure 3).

What the hazards are to consumers

In an emergency, if the use and/or placement of the pads is not clear to the user, there may be a delay in administering the defibrillation shock and this may increase the risk of injury to the patient.

What consumers should do

Consumers should contact the place of purchase to arrange for replacement of the product.

As replacement pads and cartridges may not be immediately available, users should determine whether the Infant/Child SMART Pads should remain in service until replaced by referring to the guidance in Philips' customer letter.

Affected pads and cartridges should be discarded after the replacement product has been received.
