FDA Launches Initiative to Develop Innovative External Defibrillators
Date:11/15/2010

problems include engineering design and manufacturing practices related to the adequate control of components bought from other suppliers.

"These devices play an important role in health care," said CDRH Director Jeffrey Shuren, M.D. "The purpose of our initiative is to improve these technologies so we can save more lives."

As a part of a broad initiative, CDRH is taking steps to work with manufacturers, users and experts in the field to improve the engineering design and manufacturing practices of these devices, and facilitate the development of their next generation.

CDRH intends to release a white paper that describes the actions the Center is taking to improve the safety of external defibrillators used today and to foster the development of safer, more effective technologies in the near future as part of its External Defibrillator Improvement Initiative.

Goals of the initiative include:

  • Promoting the innovation of next-generation external defibrillators to improve safety and effectiveness
  • Enhancing the ability of industry and the FDA to identify and resolve problems with devices currently on the market to address safety risks more quickly and effectively
  • Designating an appropriate premarket regulatory pathway for AEDs that promotes best practices for design and testing.

The initiative kicks off with a public meeting on Dec. 15-16, 2010, at the FDA headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland where industry and other external stakeholders will discuss ways to improve these devices. The FDA is also collaborating with the University of Colorado's Department of Emergency Medicine to define the enhancements that will improve ease of use and outcomes, such as conducting a multi-city pilot of connecting AEDs with local emergency medical services so that when an AED is used an emergency rescue team is rapidly dispatched.
