Everything you need to know about medical devices

The Federal Agency for Medicines and Health Products (FAMHP) is launching an information campaign to inform healthcare professionals and their patients about medical devices.

The goal is to raise awareness among healthcare professionals of the importance of reporting incidents involving medical devices in order to improve their monitoring.

Medical devices are widely used by all healthcare professionals and patients themselves, but too little is currently known about them. A medical device is a healthcare product that performs its medical activity by physical or mechanical means: dressings, blood pressure monitors, hip prostheses, pacemakers, or even contact lenses... The range of medical devices is particularly broad.
