MDSR is not an alerting service, but a periodically updated review of the types of problems that have occurred with medical devices and lessons learned over the past three decades. It focuses on the steps that medical device users can take to prevent or reduce medical device risks to patient care and healthcare worker safety. Organised by tags or freely searchable, it serves as a reference database for medical device safety.
