Evaluation of cardiac defibrillation probes in France

19 Apr 2017

The French National Authority for Health (HAS) has released report about evaluation of cardiac defibrillation probes and proposed updated nomenclature.

The Medical Device and Health Technology Evaluation Committee (CNEDiMTS) recommends to divide probes in two categories:

  • the probes of defibrillation of ventricular right-to-connectors DF-1/IS-1 ;
  • the probes of defibrillation of ventricular right-to-connector DF-4.

The CNEDiMTS recommends the removal of the single generic description and its replacement by a listing of these devices by brand name.
