V60 Ventilators Recalled By Respironics California Over Injury Risk

Posted on June 21, 2013

V60 ventilators are being recalled by Respironics California because of a potential software issue that could compromise patient safety.  The items were made available across the country between November 16, 2009 and March 28 of this year.  The Power Management Board Assembly, if it experiences a component failure, may lead to support being taken away from the ventilator, causing the product not to work.  There is also a chance that an alert would not be issued when this happens.  These circumstances could lead to a serious injury or a fatality.  Owners are being told to keep using the product and to await an upcoming software update.  An update and product replacement will be provided to affected individuals.
