ForensisGroup Defibrillator Expert Witnesses are specialists with knowledge of all aspects of these devices that are placed on or within a patient’s body to recognize certain types of abnormal heart rhythms or “arrhythmias” and correct them.
Defibrillators detect overly rapid arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia (rapid regular beating of the ventricles, the bottom chambers of the heart); and ventricular fibrillation (rapid irregular beating of the ventricles).
Our defibrillator expert witnesses have many years of experience in the field of clinical engineering with expertise in healthcare technology management and biomedical engineering. They specialize in medical device technology—such as defibrillators—device regulatory compliance and standards, as well as design, use, and malfunctions associated with defibrillators. They also design and implement medical device control programs for preventive maintenance and maintenance.
These professionals have assisted in litigation over automated external defibrillator failure, power issues with defibrillators and lithium batteries, such as premature battery depletion, and patient monitor problems.
Some have additional experience with defibrillator equipment selection for hospitals, EMT programs, and government agencies, as well as establishing computerized medical device control programs for preventive maintenance and maintenance.
They have consulted on cases involving defibrillator product recalls, cardiac resynchronization therapy injuries, and standards of care.
We’ve been helping attorneys, law firms, insurance companies, as well as other public and private agencies discover credentialed and knowledgeable expert witnesses since 1991. browse the list of expert witnesses or a related discipline below and contact our helpful staff to find out more about our Defibrillator Expert Witnesses.
