Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation Urges FDA to Reconsider Reclassification of AEDs

The Food and Drug Administration is in the process of reclassifying "pre-amendment class III devices," including automated external defibrillators (AEDs). This proposed increase in regulations will have significant public health consequences, due to reduced access to early defibrillation for the nation's victims of sudden cardiac arrest. If regulatory hurdles increase, access to lifesaving treatment with AEDs will decrease. Following is our letter to the FDA.

We urge you to express your concerns to the FDA as soon as possible, before a determination is made. Sign this petition. Or use the sample letter below.
