Food and Drug Administration Reports Recall of Pediatric Anesthesia Breathing Device

On December 18, 2019, the Food and Drug Administration (the “FDA”) announced that it has issued recall number Z-0698-2020for an Anesthesia Pediatric Circuit 72″, Model DYNJAPF6057A, Lots 19GBI659 and 19HBP065, manufactured by Medline Industries Inc. of Northfield, Illinois.

 

According to the FDA’s information, the device is classified as an anesthesia breathing circuit, and includes a connector, an adaptor, and a Y piece. The FDA found that the breathing circuit’s 10mm inner green inspiratory tubing is disconnected from the tee connector at the machine end of the circuit.

 

The FDA has not publicly reported whether or not there have been any injuries or deaths associated with the faulty device. If, however, your child has been injured as a result of anesthesia, or has suffered an anesthesia related death, please contact the Schiffer Law Firm to see if you may have been affected by this faulty medical device.
