Getinge is announcing a voluntary medical device recall for the Servo-i ventilator system due to a potentially shorter than specified nebulizer connector. This issue does not affect the functionality of the Servo-i ventilator system. To date, there have been no adverse events reported resulting in serious illness or injuries related to the mentioned component. Getinge has reported to relevant authorities according to applicable regulations and the cost for the recall is not material.


Getinge has identified that 997 units have been manufactured that potentially could be affected by a shorter than specified nebulizer connector.
