LifePak CR2 Defibrillator

Reason

Stryker has become aware that the lid magnet for this device can occasionally become separated and lost. Until recently, Stryker was previously only aware that if the lid magnet is missing, the device would not automatically turn on and off when the lid is opened and closed. Stryker has now become aware that if the lid magnet is missing, it also causes the LIFEPAK CR2 battery to deplete more quickly resulting in premature battery life. (Complaint trending from April 30 2020 to November 1 2020). The LPCR2 Operating Instructions currently provide users with no warning that the battery can become prematurely depleted if the lid magnet is missing.
