Teleflex Recalls Endobronchial Tube Due to Faulty Connector
Teleflex Medical has recalled 62,882 units of its Hudson RCI Sher-I-Bronch endobronchial tube because the double swivel connector may break or separate on the tube while it is inserted into a patient’s airways.
When breakage or separation occurs, the tube can leak, causing patients be deprived of oxygen. The Class I recall followed customer complaints.
The recall — involving 12 product codes — covers devices manufactured from October 2013 to April 2015 and distributed through May of this year. — Michael Cipriano
