Recall of Reusable Breathing Circuit

The FDA announced the recall of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare Reusable Breating Circuit, Model 900MR068. The recall was announced after pinholes were discovered in the tubes used in the reusable breathing circuit.

If the pinholes are not detected during the standard leak test, it could result in a gas leak, leading to a loss of pressure for the intended ventilation therapy which could lead to the patient’s death.

This recalled Fisher & Paykel Healthcare reusable breathing circuit is a non-heated breathing circuit intended to facilitate oxygen therapy delivery for adult respiratory patients.
