Understanding defective medical devices

Millions of Americans across this country rely on medical devices to sustain their health or to help them in a time of emergency. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for approving most medical devices in the United States before the devices can be used by medical professionals or consumers. The FDA has three classification levels for medical devices, with each level corresponding to risks.

  • Class I devices. These devices are considered low-risk and include items such as surgical instruments, wheelchairs, walkers, bandages, and more. This class of devices is not considered invasive or life-sustaining.
  • Class II devices. These devices are considered intermediate-risk and include devices that can be considered lifesaving, though they are not necessarily implanted into the body. This can include insulin pumps, CT scanners, IV-pumps, and more.
  • Class III devices. These devices are the highest-risk and are heavily regulated by the FDA. Class III devices are usually implanted in a person’s body and are responsible for various lifesaving functions. In this category, we find pacemakers, deep-brain stimulators, heart valves, spinal cord stimulators, and more.

While all medical devices must undergo FDA approval, there are still times when they can malfunction and cause serious harm to patients. A recent study found that medical devices have caused over 80,000 deaths across the country since 2008. Some of the devices that have caused the most harm include insulin pumps and metal hip replacements, though there are many other devices that have become defective.
