On July 19, 2005, Guidant Corporation issued a recall of a number of their popular line of Discovery II pacemakers because of a potentially fatal flaw in the seal that protects the unit from moisture. Guidant analysis discovered that the Discovery II belongs to a group of 18,000 pacemakers manufactured between 1997 and 2000 that have failed at least 69 times. When the seal around the unit fails, moisture from the body damages the delicate electronics therein, preventing the device from monitoring and regulating heartbeat. These are the Discovery II models that have been affected:

  • Guidant Discovery II 0481
  • Guidant Discovery II 0981
  • Guidant Discovery II 1184
  • Guidant Discovery II 1186
  • Guidant Discovery II 1187
  • Guidant Discovery II 1283
  • Guidant Discovery II 1284
  • Guidant Discovery II 1285
  • Guidant Discovery II 1286

Failure of the Discovery II can be fatal for patients who rely on them, because pacemakers are responsible for insuring the heart beats enough to provide blood for all the tissues of the body. Without proper circulation patients may experience irregular heartbeats, fainting, dizziness, and shortness of breath. People with Discovery II pacemakers should report any of these conditions to their doctors immediately for they may be early warning symptoms of pacemaker failure.
