Class I Recall of Centurion Medical Products Airway Kit containing Sheridan® Endotracheal Tubes

PUBLISHED: Aug 5, 2019
Relevant to: All Healthcare Organizations

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced the Class I recall of Centurion Medical Products Airway Kit containing Sheridan® Endotracheal Tubes manufactured by Teleflex. Teleflex informed Centurion of its recall for select Sheridan® Endotracheal Tubes and Connectors, as Centurion includes the recalled product in their convenience kit. Teleflex recalled multiple models of the Hudson RCI Sheridan and Sheridan Endotracheal Tubes due to reports of the Sheridan endotracheal tube connector dislodging from the endotracheal tube, causing disconnection of the patient from the breathing circuit, which may result in insufficient oxygenation, decrease in vital signs, or death.

Four deaths and 18 injuries have been reported to Teleflex in association with disconnection. However, Centurion has no reported injuries or complaints.

The use of affected product may cause serious adverse health consequences, including death.
