Defective Lead Wire Defibrillator Lawyer Handles Defective Lead Wire Defibrillator Lawsuits Where A Defective Lead Wire Perforates The Heart Wall or the Defibrillator Fails by Texas Defective Lead Wire Defibrillator Lawyer and Texas Product Liability Defective Product Lawyer Jason S. Coomer 

Defibrillation is a treatment for life-threatening cardiac dysrhythmias, specifically ventricular fibrillation (VF) and non-perfusing ventricular tachycardia (VT).  A properly working defibrillator should deliver a dose of electric current (often called a countershock) to the heart. This electrical shock depolarizes a large amount of the heart muscle, ending the dysrhythmia. Subsequently, the body's natural pacemaker in the sinoatrial node of the heart is then able to re-establish normal sinus rhythm.  Unfortunately, when a defective lead wire is used in a defibrillator, the lead wire can come loose causing a perforation of the heart wall or a defibrillator failure that can cause serious injury or death. 

If you have been seriously injured by a defective defibrillator lead wire or you have lost a loved one from a defective defibrillator lead wire, please feel free to submit an inquiry or send an e-mail to Texas defective defibrillator lawyer Jason Coomer

Proper Functioning Defibrillator Medical Devices Save Lives

The defibrillator medical device has been a great innovation for heart patients that have irregular heart beats or slow heart beats.  Prior to the development of the defibrillator technology people with irregular heartbeats were limited to medication and hope that their hearts would hold up for the long-term. However, with the new defibrillator technology, properly working defibrillators are able to save many lives and allow people with irregular heartbeats to live longer and lead normal lives.

The defibrillator is designed to regulate the heart in patients with irregular heart beats. When a patient's heartbeat becomes irregular, the system is supposed to send a 'shock' to the heart that forces it back into rhythm. The lead wire is the component that transmits the message to the device.  The lead wire is implanted inside a blood vessel that leads to the heart. 

Defective Defibrillator Lead Wire Claims (Defective Defibrillator Leads)

The defibrillator system consists of the defibrillator (a small metal case with electronic devices and batteries) and the leads (sensors that extend into the heart to determine if there is a heart arrhythmia).  These are both parts of the defibrillator that are implanted into heart patients.  The third part of the defibrillation system is the programmer which is kept at a hospital or clinic.

The defective part of the defibrillators are the electrical leads. Chronic fractures of the leads have occurred on the distal portion of the ring affecting the anode (ring electrode), near the anchoring sleeve tie-down primarily effecting the cathode (helix tip electrode), and on high voltage conductor. 

The problem that's arisen in the defibrillators is that the lead wire, after it's been implanted, has shown an alarming tendency to tear.  This fracture or tear causes the defibrillator system to stop working and result in heart failure or death in a patient with an irregular heart beat.  This is because patients with an irregular heart beat are relying on the defibrillator to regulate their heart beat.  These patients if they have a defective defibrillator implanted in them do not have the protection that they think they have and the lack of a properly working defibrillator can result in death or heart failure.
