|Electronics manufacturer, Philips, has announced a product defect correction for a range of medical breathing support devices due to concerns about potential defects.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) is working with Philips to ensure the product defect correction is conducted quickly and safely.
Over the last 10 years, DVA has supplied around 1,700 clients with DVA-funded devices affected by the product defect correction. We are working with our service providers who supply these products to ensure affected clients are aware of the product defect correction and the need to register their affected devices with Philips.
Anyone who is affected by the product defect correction should speak to their treating physician, or health professional in the first instance.
DVA’s priority is the health and safety of veterans and their families and we will work closely with the TGA and our service providers to ensure affected clients continue to receive appropriate care.
Further information about the product defect correction is available on the TGA website.
