Recall Involving TeleFlex Medical Willy Rusch Tracheostomy Tube

Willy Rusch Tracheostomy Tube Set by TeleFlex Medical: Class I Recall – Possible Disconnection During Patient Use

Teleflex is recalling the Willy Rusch Tracheostomy Tube Set due to the possibility that the connector may disconnect from the tracheostomy tube during use on a ventilated patient. If the connector detaches from the tracheostomy tube shaft during use, it can deprive the patient of adequate ventilation and would require immediate medical intervention including changing the tracheostomy tube and placing a new tube. The use of affected products may cause serious adverse health consequences including oxygen deprivation, brain damage and death.
