Abstract

The unintentional print-out by two different software programmes of the same resuscitation-related events stored on a data card of a Laerdal®FR2-automated external defibrillator (AED), led to the discovery of flaws in the registration of the time line by one of the commercially available Laerdal®software programmes. This observation stresses the need for a continuation of the medical supervision of AED projects, the close co-operation between clinicians and AED manufacturers, the well-controlled introduction of new devices and strict postmarket surveillance programmes. © 2006 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
