GE Healthcare Vital Signs Device Recalled

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced earlier this month that it has notified healthcare professionals of a Class I recall of the GE Healthcare Vital Signs Hygroscopic Condenser Humidifier Passive Humidification Device for Vital Signs Anesthesia Breathing Circuits.

The Class I recall, the FDA's most serious, confirms the concerns the FDA has about the product, which is sold as a part of the Vital Signs anesthesia breathing circuit and is used to maintain moisture in the patient's airway during mechanical ventilation. Reports say the affected products were manufactured between January 2011 and April 2011, and a list of affected product codes and lot numbers can be accessed at on the FDA website.

GE began notifying customers with affected units in April of 2011, reports say, and doctors, hospitals and other customers are also directed to remove and return all affected products.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
