Action Medtronic sent an Urgent Product Safety Advisory letter dated June 28, 2016, to all affected customers informing them of the correction and providing instruction to avoid causing injury when using the EMG Endotracheal Tube. Recommended Actions included: inspecting the product thoroughly before use, testing the cuff by inflating it then deflating it before intubation, using a non-malleable stylet that closely matches the natural curve of the tube, not bending and flexing the tube excessively before use, and lubricating the cuff with a non-paralyzing, aqueous lubricant and a lubricated stylet. If customers found an EMG tube that appeared to have an electrode wire protruding from the distal end, the tube is not to be used and practitioners are urged to call Medtronic Product Quality Experience Department at 1-866-849-4003. For further questions , please call (904) 296-9600.
