Medical Device Safety

A medical device is any product used to diagnose, cure, or treat a condition, or to prevent disease. They range from small and simple, like a blood glucose meter, to large and complicated, like a ventilator. You might use one at home or at work, or you may need one in a hospital.

To use medical devices safely

  • Know how your device works. Keep instructions close by
  • Understand and properly respond to device alarms
  • Have a back-up plan and supplies in the event of an emergency
  • Keep emergency numbers available and update them as needed
  • Educate your family and caregivers about your device
