Physio-Control is recalling the LIFEPAK 1000 due to an electrical issue which may cause the device to shut down unexpectedly during patient treatment. Physio-Control has determined that wear and oxidation formation between the battery and device electrical contacts may cause power interruptions. This may prevent the device from delivering the electrical shock needed to revive a patient in cardiac arrest. The FDA has published the recall notice HERE.

Carilion Roanoke Memorial’s Level I Trauma Center will soon implement new scoring criteria to determine what level of response they will provide when receiving an adult or pediatric trauma patient. When calling in prior to bringing a trauma patient to the CRMH Trauma Center, please be prepared to provide all of the information necessary for the Trauma Center to determine whether the call will be handled as a Gold Alert, Trauma Alert, or Trauma Consult. The new criteria will be implemented on March 13.
