The Consequences of Medical Device Failure

  • Posted

A Medical Device

A medical device describes any piece of equipment used in medical treatment. Examples of medical devices range from thermometers to complex X-Ray equipment. There are strict testing and safety procedures followed for each medical device before it can be declared safe for use. Patients enjoy great benefits from the thousands of devices used world-wide each day such as joint replacements and pacemakers.

However, sometimes these devices can be subject to failure. What would happen if you are one of the unfortunate patients to suffer the failure of one of these products? How can you find out if this was a unique incident or a more widespread issue? How do you determine whether the fault lies within the device or could be the result of a mistake on the part of the treating doctors or surgeons? These are all important considerations when investigating the cause of the issue.
