TeleFlex Medical Issues Recall for Tracheostomy Tube Set

Oct. 25, 2016

Teleflex is recalling the Willy Rusch Tracheostomy Tube Set due to the possibility that the connector is likely to disconnect from the tracheostomy tube during use on a ventilated patient.

A tracheostomy tube is a single-use device that is attached via the patient’s trachea during a tracheostomy to create safe airway access and provide a pathway to remove fluid from the trachea and lungs.

Devices were manufactured from June 2015 through December 2015 and distributed between July 2015 and May 2016. — Cynthia Jessup
