St. Jude Lawsuits
Patients who use medical devices such as pacemakers or implanted defibrillators count on these medical devices to work correctly when needed.
Unfortunately, it was recently announced that patients whose device was manufactured by St. Jude Medical are at risk due to faulty batteries.
About These St. Jude Devices
The devices were introduced in 2010 and are meant to last for 7 years or longer, until their batteries are depleted, the company said. They are designed to vibrate at regular intervals once power is diminished, a signal to patients that they should visit their doctors for replacements within 90 days.
Side effects from these faulty batteries are serious and may include:
- Premature Batter Depletion
- Device Unable To Delivers Shocks When Needed
- Heart Attack
Patients should seek immediate medical attention as soon as they get a low-battery alert from the monitoring devices, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said, in announcing the recall.
