FDA: Class I recall of King Systems’ video laryngoscope adapter

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) on February 27 identified the recall by King Systems of its King Vision Video Laryngoscope Adapter (size ½) as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated because all devices from the affected lots show a reversed image on the display, which may cause serious adverse events, including airway trauma and hypoxia. The reversed image also may extend the time to place the endotracheal tube, which may lead to brain damage, organ failure, and death.
