Esprit Ventilator Model V1000

Audience: Hospital Risk Managers, respiratory care professionals 

The FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health posted a Class I recall notice for the Esprit Ventilator Model V1000 by Respironics California, Inc., of Carlsbad, California. Material used to construct three check-valves in this ventilator predisposed the valves to premature failure. There have been two patient injuries resulting in partial or complete failure to permit ventilation.
