Medtronic Xomed NIM Trivantage EMG Endotracheal Tube: Class I Recall
MedSun: Newsletter #86, July 2013
FDA MedWatch Safety Alert
The firm received complaints of "cuff leak" or "cuff deflation" occurring when the inflation valve cap is inappropriately removed (pulled off, instead of snapped-off sideways). This requires the physician to re-inflate or replace the deflated tube to ensure the continued breathing support of the patient.
