AliveCor has recalled one of its heart monitor apps due to the app crashing upon use.

More than 5,000 active iOS users are affected by the recall, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a recall notice. The AliveECG app works in tandem with the AliveCor Heart Monitor to record electrocardiograms and detect the presence of atrial fibrillation and normal sinus rhythm when prescribed by or under the guidance of a physician. The FDA has designated this as a Class III recall, according to

AliveCor was quick to release an updated version of 2.1.3 on iTunes, which repairs the issues causing the app to crash when updating from the previous version. The company recently received clearance for two more algorithms for use with future app updates. One algorithm detects normal readings, and the other detects interference or improper use of the device, reported. disclaimer: This article: Heart Monitor App Crashes, Prompting Recall was posted on Friday, February 27th, 2015 at 1:53 pm at and is filed under Medical Device Lawsuits, Other Lawsuits, Product Liability Lawsuits.
