Product Detail

Product Description Code Info Classification Reason for Recall Product Quantity Recall Number
VIA Medical Collection Bag; The collection bag is an accessory waste bag used in conjunction with the sterile LVM blood gas sensor with the LVM Monitor. The collection bag is packaged in a tyvek pouch which is included in either replacement kit (777-3103) or LVM sensor kit (777-3102). Model/Part Number: 209-2113, or as part of kits 777-3103 and 777-3102. Collection Bag Lot numbers: 4389, 4465, 4478, 4516, 4530, 4430, 4489 Class II International Biomedical has received reports of interference between the collection bag and the extension set connectors. Evaluation of the affected components indicates that the collection bag connector can become occluded due to an over-tightening of the luer lock by the end user. To alleviate the occurrence of this issue in the fixture, the connector on the collection bag has been improved to assure a tight seal while not allowing the component to be overtightened to the extent where an occlusion would occur. 7,000 Z-1531-2013
