Medical Products can be dangerous
A medical product is an object which is useful for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. Medical products are by nature thought to be safe and effective for their intended use. It is assumed that all necessary testing has been done by the company before the product is released for sale to public. Medical products have to pass a rigorous pre-market approval process. Once it passes through the approval process, the public assumes that the medical product can be safely used for the purpose for which it is intended. Medical products are meant to do good. They are supposed to help people overcome their medical and health problems. But sometime, they can be fatal. Most people are under a false notion that if a medical product has been approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration, then it is safe but that’s not always the case. Sometimes, medical products can be the cause of a injuries. This can happen if the product is defective or not labeled or formulated correctly. Sometimes, certain medical products can react adversely with existing medical conditions producing dangerous side effects. Certain medical products pose health risks to certain persons. Manufacturers of medical products have an obligation to test the product for such dangers. They must warn users of any potential danger associated with the use of the product.
