the detached prongs may present a potential risk of choking and airway obstruction
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, update the website daily regarding all the latest information from the FDA on safety alerts for Infant Nasal CPAP Prongs.
The FDA announced on May 23, that Fisher and Paykel Healthcare Infant Nasal CPAP Prongs are recalled because prongs may detach from nasal tubing and interrupt therapy. The Nasal CPAP Prongs are used to deliver continuous positive airway pressure which involves passing air through an infant’s nose.
FDA’s reason for the recall is that there have been 24 reports in which the affected prongs detached from the nasal tubing during use, especially when mucous or moisture are present. Interruption of therapy may occur and this may cause hypoxemia. Moreover, the detached prongs may present a potential risk of choking and airway obstruction with serious, life-threatening, adverse events.
Taking into consideration the latest developments, AttorneyOne.com monitor daily and update the website providing accurate information on all relevant FDA safety alerts. Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds “we are determined to keep an eye on FDA announcements concerning Infant Nasal CPAP Prongs and inform the public. For that reason", he continues, "our focus should squarely fall on investigating these safety alerts and getting the word out.”
As the FDA informs “Starting April 11, 2014, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare sent its customers an Urgent Medical Device Recall letter. The letter identified the product, problem, and actions to be taken, which include:
- Identify any Affected Prongs in your inventory by checking the REF and LOT number on the packaging. For Starter Kits, only the Nasal CPAP Prongs are affected and the rest of the Starter Kit is suitable for use.
- Destroy the Affected Prongs by cutting them in half and disposing of the products.
- Complete Section A ‘Inspection of Stock’ on the Urgent Medical Device Recall Response Form and return it to your FPH Representative.
- Contact your FPH Representative for replacement products.”
