FDA Survey: Inform Recommendations For Establishing a Critical Medical Device List by Jan. 18

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Center for Devices and Radiological Health Resilient Supply Chain Program is conducting a survey in support of an interagency effort to develop a recommended list of critical medical devices – including device materials, components, parts, or accessories – to improve the nation's preparedness for future emergencies and implement the National Strategy for a Resilient Public Health Supply Chain. The field of cardiology utilizes many critical devices, and the resiliency of our supply chain is essential to get those devices to cardiovascular patients to provide life-saving care. It is important that the FDA capture the views of the cardiology community in their efforts to establish a critical medical device list. The voluntary survey should take approximately 20 minutes to complete, and all questions are optional. The survey will close on Jan. 18, 2023, at 5 p.m. ET. Take the survey.
