- All Healthcare Organizations
GE Healthcare is recalling the CareScape R860 Inspiratory Safety Guard due to the risk of the device disconnecting from the patient’s breathing circuit. As the result of a manufacturing defect, the safety guard’s outlet connector may have incorrect dimensions, which could result in the device not having a secure fit with the breathing circuit. This may result in the patient not receiving breathing support. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has classified this as a Class I Recall.
