Pulsar Max II Pacemaker
FREE Case Review
Guidant Corporation notified the public on July 19, 2005 of a recall for the PULSAR MAX II model pacemaker. This device is among 18,000 devices manufactured between 1997 and 2000 that have a potentially fatal defect in the seal that prevents moisture from damaging the delicate electronics inside. This flaw may have caused failures in 69 devices and possibly even one fatality, although that link is harder to establish because of a number of variables. In any event, Guidant believes that this flaw may prevent the devices from working properly and should be taken with the utmost severity. These are the PULSAR MAX II models affected:
- Guidant Pulsar Max II 1180
- Guidant Pulsar Max II 1181
- Guidant Pulsar Max II 1280
Pacemakers are vital to provide the heart proper motivation to maintain a proper blood circulation throughout the body.

People with PULSAR MAX II pacemakers should alert their doctor immediately for these symptoms may be early indications of pacemaker failure. Taking quick action may save your life.
