The Cochlear Nucleus CI512 Device
First of all, if you or a family member suffer an unfortunate failure of this device, please be mindful that Cochlear (or a representative of the company) may attempt to offer nominal reimbursements or replacement equipment in exchange for your signing a release of liability with the company, which could impact your legal rights to pursue a product liability for the device failure. Before you sign ANYTHING which could adversely affect your legal rights to recover, the product liability lawyers at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation strongly recommend that you retain a law firm that has the requisite experience in handling medical device claims to maximize your recovery.
Often, recipients of defective, N5 devices will experience a period of intermittency of device function prior to the implant failing entirely. The failure of the N5 devices is due to the failure of the impact to achieve a hermetic seal. During the manufacturing process, defective N5 devices exhibited microcracks when the implants were braced. This defect in manufacture affected the implants' structural integrity and allowed saline from the inner ear to penetrate the device, thereby short circuiting the diodes which power the device. This sequence of events and resulting lack of hermeticity caused the device intermittency and ultimate failure of the device entirely when it shuts down. At the point of intermittent functionality, it is best to have your audiologist trouble shoot the device and confirm, conclusively, whether the device has experienced a hard failure. Typically, Cochlear will have an on-call audiologist administer an "Integrity Test Report" to determine if the device is working properly.
