Editor's Note

The Food and Drug Administration on September 12 identified the recall by Medtronic Xomed of its NIM Contact Reinforced EMG Endotracheal Tube and NIM Standard Reinforced EMG Endotracheal Tube as Class I, the most serious.

The recall was initiated after Medtronic Xomed received customer complaints about obstruction of the endotracheal tubes while in use in patients during surgery.

Between March 31, 2020, and March 31, 2022, the company received 15 complaints, reports of three injuries, and reports of two deaths associated with this issue.

Distribution dates were April 26, 2018, to April 15, 2022.
