Examples of Defective Medical Devices

A medical device is defined by the FDA as an instrument, apparatus or other piece of equipment that is designed to diagnose a medical condition or to cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent a medical condition. A defective medical device can be one that is used directly by a consumer or one that is used by a medical professional to treat a patient. In both types of cases, the medical device can either fail to treat the consumer, or worse, cause physical injury to the patient, possibly even death.

A few examples of medical devices include the following:

  • Implantable medical devices
  • Syringes
  • Sedation systems
  • Ventilators
  • Wheel chairs
  • Contact lenses
  • Shoulder pain pumps

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is in charge of overseeing reports of harmful medical devices and can issue recalls on products. When this happens, the FDA can order that the product be removed from the marked and that action be taken to correct the flaw.
