Recall: Carefusion EnVe Ventilators

128 units of EnVe ventilators manufactured by Carefusion between December 2010 and May 2011 are part of recall that began on September 12, 2011. The model number of the faulty Carefusion ventilation unit is 19250-001.

Ventilators are used in medical settings to perform the action of providing oxygen to the body and tissues. They are utilized when patients are under general anesthesia, when patients are injured and cannot breathe on their own, or to provide additional oxygen if the person is unable to keep blood oxygen levels at a sufficient level. 

The Carefusion EnVe ventilator may automatically reset itself, or experience a delay in ventilating after reconnection (either by patient or health care worker). In these events, the possiblilty of stopped or interrupted ventilation is present. This can result in hypoxic (lack of oxygen) conditions developing in the patient which can lead to serious brain injury or death.
