As technology provides more health care options, children are frequently diagnosed or treated with one or more medical devices.
If there are problems that prevent the safe use of pediatric medical devices, FDA wants to know about them. FDA wants caregivers to report problems or concerns to help ensure that pediatric devices can be used safely and deliver the intended benefits. And the agency wants to hear about the problems when they happen, especially if they might jeopardize the safety or care of a child.
