  • Extra notes in the data
  • Reason
    The manufacturer reports that the tab of the cprstat-padz and cpr-d-padz electrodes can be inserted incorrectly into the connector housing of the multifunction cable, causing an "attach pads" error message, which if not corrected could prevent the download of the equipment, leading to the potential occurrence of adverse events on the patient.
