A recall has been issued for the Teleflex Medical, Hudson RCI Sheridan Sher-I-Bronch Endobronchial Tube.  Teleflex Medical has received customer complaints about the endobroncial tube’s double swivel connector which may break or separate on the tube. If this happens, the device may leak, causing the patient to not receive enough oxygen (hypoxia) or experience respiratory distress. This can lead to the need to re-intubate the patient, patient injury or death.
