Medical Devices

Medical devices can save lives, improve patient outcomes, and shorten recovery times, but not if faulty design prevents the product from working properly.  Rather, a defective medical device can make the condition it was designed to treat worse -- sometimes a great deal worse -- in situations where the product is contaminated with bacteria, promotes bacterial growth,

Recent examples of medical devices that have not worked as intended include:
  • 3M Bair Hugger Therapy blankets;
  • IVC
  • x

Often times, a medical device requires an operation to install or "implant" the device into the body. 

When a medical device it discovered to be defective, the product manufacturer must inform the FDA and the public about the flaw and any potential risks that may arise.
