Description

This dataset includes reports submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) from January 01, 2018 through December 31, 2018. The reports are submitted to the FDA by both mandatory and voluntary reporters. Mandatory reports are provided by manufacturers, importers, and device user facilities, such as hospitals, outpatient diagnostic or treatment facilities, nursing homes and ambulatory surgical facilities. Voluntary reports are provided by health care professionals, patients and consumers. The reports include suspected device-associated deaths, serious injuries and malfunctions. The FDA uses the reports to monitor device performance, detect potential device-related safety issues, and contribute to benefit-risk assessments of the products.

Each year, the FDA receives several hundred thousand medical device reports (MDRs) of suspected device-associated deaths, serious injuries and malfunctions. The FDA uses MDRs to monitor device performance, detect potential device-related safety issues, and contribute to benefit-risk assessments of these products. The Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience Database (MAUDE) database houses MDRs submitted to the FDA by mandatory reporters (manufacturers, importers and device user facilities) and voluntary reporters such as health care professionals, patients and consumers.
