Centurion Medical Products has initiated a sub-recall of Teleflex’s Sheridan endotracheal tracheal tubes (ETTs) over device disconnections caused by faulty device design.

The agency said the recall is being conducted over increased happenings of the device’s connector coming loose from the endotracheal tube.

Endotracheal tubes are used to open a patient’s airway, provide ventilation and administer anesthesia, and are designed for patients that cannot breathe by themselves.
