Covidien plc (COV) Recalls Certain Lots of Shiley Adult Tracheostomy Tubes


8/7/2012 8:18:42 AM

Covidien today announced that it notified customers on July 18, 2012, about a voluntary global recall of certain lots of its Shiley™ reusable cannula, cuffed adult tracheostomy tubes, size 8. This action was in response to reports of volume leakage and/or disconnection between the inner and outer cannulae. Customers are instructed to return all Shiley 8LPC and 8FEN tracheostomy tubes from the affected lots. If one of the recalled tubes is already in use in a patient, the Company recommends that the tube be replaced as soon as clinically appropriate as determined by the patient’s physician. If the physician advises leaving the tracheostomy tube in place, the Company strongly encourages that the frequency of direct patient observation be increased.
