This is to update you on the hemospray recall that has been issued due to a defect. It is the same that was issued in Nov/Dec, but has broadened and affects more inventory.
This recall has impacted ALL hemospray inventory (7Fr & 10Fr) that was in the department, so it was pulled & we currently have none. I am working with our supply management team to address this, but there currently isn’t an alternative product/substitute that they are offering.
This could eventually result in a worldwide shortage once production is resumed, so a backorder could be eminent, with further delays until it is available in the department.
I will provide an update when more information is available.

“This is my favorite conference because of the varied level of practicioners and
all are encouraged and respected. I feel welcomed by my colleagues”
“Continues to be one of the best CME events that I attend! I have come 4 or 5 times and I always find it applicable and practice changing.; I keep saying it every year, this year was the best yet!
“Been going to conferences for 28 years, I always say this is the best conference
every year, and every year it is better”
“Was great to be in a room full of nurses who play the same role I do, and discuss the nursing side of endoscopy. Dr MacIntosh was so helpful and was great to see a physician discuss things from a nursing perspective. Excellent!”
