Anesthesia Delivery System Recall

The FDA announced that medical device manufacturer Mindray DS USA, Inc. has recalled its Model A3 Anesthesia Delivery System and Model A5 Anesthesia Delivery System. The reason for the recall is a potential gasket leak that may cause issues with ventilation and delivery of anesthesia to a patient during surgery. Permanent injury or death is a possible result. This recall is targeted more for medical providers, but consumers should be aware of it and ask questions about the type of equipment to be used during a surgery.
