The Food and Drug Administration is calling for tighter regulations on public defibrillators to ensure better quality and fewer recalls.
There are now about 2.4 million automated external defibrillators in public places around the country. The FDA's proposal does not call for any devices to be removed or replaced, but it would require manufacturers to get approval for future products.
Since 2005, there have been 45,000 reports of problems or failures involving public defibrillators.
