The letter by Usher et al.  is an accurate representation of our investigations into this event. Draeger Medical, in conjunction with the power supply manufacturer, instigated a recall action in November 2002 for the affected power supplies (154 in total). This action was completed on December 20, 2002 (FDA Recall No. Z-0268–3/Z-0269–3).
