HARTFORD >> A medical equipment company has issued a voluntary recall of an atomization device commonly used to dispense the overdose reversal medication naloxone, according to a release from the state Department of Public Health.
According to a joint release Thursday from the state Health Department and Department of Consumer Protection, Teleflex Medical issued a voluntary recall of its LMA MAD Intranasal Mucosal Atomization Device. This equipment is frequently used for devices dispensing naloxone directly into a person’s nostril. The use of this medication can quickly revive a person who is overdosing on an opioid. The atomization device is also used for life-threatening situations such as hypoglycemia and epileptic seizures.
