Draeger Recall Perseus A500 Anesthesia Workstation
A faulty power switch has resulted in a recall of 34 units of Draeger’s Perseus A500 anesthesia workstation.
The device — which provides anesthesia and breathing support for children and adults — may alarm and shut down unexpectedly if the power switch fails.
Draeger sent an urgent field safety notice to all customers with affected devices on Nov. 10, 2015.
The recall, designated Class 1 by the FDA, covers workstations manufactured from June 1, 2013 to Sept. 30, 2015, and distributed between Feb. 1, 2015 and Sept. 30, 2015. — Michael Cipriano
