Resmed recalls SB flow generator:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Sleep-disordered breathing specialist Resmed has taken a $60m hit to its first quarter earnings due to a worldwide recall of around 300,000 units of its S8 flow generators, used for treating sleep apnoea. The devices affected by the recall were manufactured between July 2004 and May 15, 2006. The warning was voluntarily issued by Resmed last week after reports that a short circuit in the power supply connector, a component supplied by a third party, caused the devices to fail. In seven cases worldwide, device failures have led to thermal damage, which, in turn, could potentially lead to a fire. Resmed said that no significant property damage or patient injury has been reported.
