Cardiac Science sent out a correspondence to all Powerheart G3 AED owners last week warning of the use of off-brand electrodes with their AED. They stated that these third-party pads had not been officially tested, therefore were not approved for use with the Powerheart G3 AED. If a consumer does use a set of off-brand pads with the Cardiac Science Powerheart G3 AED, several reprecussions take place:
– Invalidation of AED Warranty (per user manual)
– Cancellation of Indemification Policy
– Negation of Good Samaritan Law per state
