Philips Respironics is recalling all V60 and V60 Plus ventilators because an internal power fluctuation may cause the ventilator to shut down unintentionally, with or without a visible or audible alarm, the Food and Drug Administration announced Friday. Four associated injuries and one death have been reported. The company has advised customers to implement certain actions to mitigate the risk or conduct a risk/benefit analysis to evaluate whether the device should continue in use.
