On July 19, 2005, Guidant Corporation recalled their popular Pulsar Max line of artificial pacemakers because of the risk that the devices may suffer from a manufacturing defect that could be potentially fatal. A seal designed to keep moisture out of the unit may fail causing the device to malfunction. 69 reports of failure have been reported from these devices that belong to a group of 78,000 other pacemakers manufactured between 1997 and 2000. It is speculated that this malfunction was associated with this fatality, although that connection is still under investigation. These are the Pulsar Max models affected:

  • Guidant Pulsar Max 1170
  • Guidant Pulsar Max 1171
  • Guidant Pulsar Max 1270

Because pacemakers regulate the heartbeat it is critically important that people with these devices be on guard for symptoms of potential failure. Dizziness, shortness of breath, fainting, and prolonged fast heart rate are common signs of pacemaker failure. Guidant recommends that doctors treat the individual needs of their patients rather than issue a blanket statement.
