December 1, 2015: Dräger Baby Ventilator Power Supply Unit Recall Due to Software Flaw

shutterstock_3099614December 1, 2015, Dräger initiated a recall of the PS500 Power Supply Unit, used with two models of ventilators, the Evita V500 and the Babylog VN500. The Dräger baby ventilator power supply unit recall was triggered by a software flaw in the battery power supply, in which the device may misinform the user of its amount of battery charge. In this case, the ventilator may deplete its battery, to the point that the machine turns off, in which case the patient may not receive necessary oxygen.

Since this risk is so dire, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall, because use of this device may cause serious injury or death.
