Medtronic is recalling some of its implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD) and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT-D) devices because of an unexpected and rapid decrease in battery life. The company said this is due to a short circuit and will cause some devices to produce a “Recommended Replacement Time” (first warning that the battery is low) earlier than expected. Some devices may progress from “Recommended Replacement Time” to full battery depletion within as little as one day.
