German devicemaker Drager issued a recall Thursday on its VentStar Oxylog 3000 disposable pediatric patient circuit after learning that the product’s check valve can leak.

The recall affects 1,530 units sold in 26 states.

The leaky valve can increase a patient’s carbon dioxide blood levels, which can lead to serious consequences. — Cynthia Jessup
