FDA Medical Device Safety

FDA's Home Use Device website provides resources and safety information about medical products used in the home environment. This website now features 'Case Studies of the Month' that showcase reported problems consumers and health care professionals experience with their medical device. The FDA encourages consumers and health care professionals to report problems they have with their devices while they are using them. This could be anything from an injury or death to a malfunction or near miss with a device while it is being used. To see these case studies, visit the links in additional information below.
