SCOPE INFECTION

Any reprocessed endoscope that resulted in infection

On 11-13-15 the FDA ordered a recall of all Custom Ultrasonics AERs due to an increased risk of infection transmission. The AER is a machine/system that cleans and disinfects endoscopes between uses. If not properly cleaned, the endoscope can transmit a bacterial infection called carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE). CRE is highly antibiotic resistant, has a high mortality rate and must be diagnosed by culture.
