VENTLAB LLC. RESUS BAG Back to Search Results
Model Number CPRM1116
Device Problem Inadequacy of Device Shape and/or Size (1583)
Patient Problem Death (1802)
Event Date 01/05/2017
Event Type  Death  
Manufacturer Narrative
The affected device was not returned for evaluation however every mask that sunmed manufacturers is checked for inflation before it is placed into a resuscitation kit. If the inflation of a mask is determined to be low, the production operators will re-inflate it per the approved work instructions. If a mask is determined to be flat it will be scrapped. The customer did not complain about the masks being deflated. The complaint stated that the masks did not provide a good seal around the patient's face. The mask in question is an adult mask that is relatively large in size. This complaint originated in a nursing home so it feasible that the mask was not the correct size for the patient. This might explain why the customer had the same problem with two masks that were used back-to back. Overall there is not enough information to state that the devices did not meet a specified requirement or malfunctioned.
Event Description
The customer alleges "the mask on the resus bag did not provide a proper seal around the patient's face. " the customer also states that a second mask was retrieved and the same issue occurred. The resident was subsequently transported to the emergency room and died.
