Russian plant recalls ventilator model linked to hospital fires - RIA

MOSCOW, June 10 (Reuters) - A Russian plant will recall a model of medical ventilators that was linked to two deadly hospital fires, the RIA news agency reported on Wednesday, citing the plant’s press service.

The Urals Instrument Engineering Plant (UPZ) in the region of Sverdlovsk where the Aventa-M ventilators were made said it would conduct additional inspections and tests.

Russia suspended the use of some Aventa-M ventilators in May. (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova; Writing by Alexander Marrow; Editing by Andrew Heavens)
