Medical Device List

A medical device is a product which is used for medical purposes in patients, in diagnosis, therapy or surgery. If applied to the body, the effect of the medical device is primarily physical, in contrast to pharmaceutical drugs, which exert a biochemical effect.

Medical devices include a wide range of products varying in complexity and application. Examples include tongue depressors, medical thermometers, blood sugar meters, total artificial hearts, fibrin scaffolds, stents and X-ray machines. Below we provide a partial list of popular medical devices shown in high, medium and low risk categories.

High Risk Medical Devices

High risk devices are life supports, critical monitoring, energy emitting and other devices whose failure or misuse is reasonably likely to seriously injure patient or staff. Examples include:

  • Anesthesia Units
  • Anesthesia Ventilators
  • Apnea Monitors

  • Aspirators
  • Auto Transfusion Units

Medium Risk Medical Devices

These are devices including many diagnostic instruments whose misuse, failure or absence (e.g. out of service) with no replacement available would have a significant impact on patient care, but would not be likely to cause direct serious injury. Examples include:

  • ECG
  • EEG
  • Treadmills
  • Ultrasound Sensors
  • Phototherapy Units
  • Endoscopes
  • Human-Implantable RFID Chips

  • Zoophagous Agents (e.g., Medicinal Leeches; Medicinal Maggots)
  • Lytic Bacteriophages

Low Risk Medical Devices

Devices in this category are those whose failure or misuse is unlikely to result in serious consequences. Examples include:

  • Electronic Thermometer
  • Breast Pumps
  • Surgical Microscope
  • Ultrasonic Nebulizers
  • Sphygmomanometers
