The Food And Drug Administration Releases A Warning
Both the Center For Disease Control And Food And Drug Administration have released warnings about the Stockert 3T Heater-Cooler Device. They have stated that it can cause a serious infection, which can be life-threatening. The Stockert Heater-Cooler Device is important because it helps the body maintain the proper temperature during the surgery.
It is estimated that these devices are used during 250,000 heart surgeries every year. Sixty percent of these devices have been linked to life-threatening infections. According to the Food And Drug Administration, these devices have been around since 2006.
The CDC and FDA have stated that the devices were contaminated with Mycobacterium Chimaera when they were produced. When the facilities were tested in 2014, they were found to have Mycobacterium Chimaera. This problem was reportedly rectified in 2015 when the facilities were tested again.
The FDA has stated that the Mycobacterium Chimaera infection can take months to develop. It is estimated that dozens of patients have developed this condition. Many of these patients have died from the infection. Because this condition can take months to develop, people are encouraged to see a doctor if they notice the following night sweats, unexplained fever, muscle aches, weight loss and fatigue.
