Draeger Medical Recalls Oxylog 3000 Plus Emergency and Transport Ventilators for Risk of Unexpected Depleted Battery and Ventilator Stop
Draeger Medical is recalling the Oxylog 3000 Plus Emergency and Transport Ventilator after receiving reports that the device stopped ventilation because of a depleted battery, even after being re-connected to AC power.

A battery alarm: “Charge int. battery” and “Int. battery discharged” does occur with this issue.
The FDA has identified this as a Class I recall, the most serious type of recall. Use of these devices may cause serious injuries, serious health consequences, or death.
