TGA suspension of the PB 980 ventilator

TGA has taken regulatory action to suspend from the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) a device that is used in the intensive care environment. A suspension from the ARTG means that the device can no longer be imported or supplied by the device’s Australian sponsor. The device under suspension is known as the Puritan Bennett 980 ventilator.  This ventilator is used in the ICU and possibly other critical care settings. For more information click here click here
