Teleflex Recalls Anesthesia Circuits

Devices may crack, hindering airway-based care.

Published: October 8, 2014

Teleflex Medical has issued a Class I recall of certain lots of its Hudson RCI pediatric anesthesia breathing circuits, says the FDA.The circuits' ends might crack or break before or during surgery, potentially resulting in severe or fatal patient treatment delays or respiratory difficulties.

The affected circuits were manufactured between March 2013 and July 2014. A list of product codes and lot numbers can be viewed on the FDA's website.

Teleflex Medical contacted its customers by mail last month, urging them to stop using any affected devices they have on hand and to remove them from inventory.
