Olympus Scope surgery has been linked to hospitalization, pain, nausea and death.
Recent infections and deaths linked to deadly “superbug” bacteria at UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center in California led medical and legal experts as well as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate what caused the infection to spread. Doctors and officials traced the deadly outbreak to one particular device: A specific duodenoscope, the TJF-Q180V model manufactured by Olympus. Affected patients who had procedures with the tainted scope – or their survivors – are now filing lawsuits or investigation claims against Olympus.
If you believe you may have developed a CRE infection, contact your medical provider immediately. To diagnose a CRE infection, your physician will administer a blood test and perform a drug sensitivity test on the resulting culture. If the bacteria’s growth is not inhibited by the antibiotics, one of which is carbapenem, you may have a CRE infection. Possible signs and symptoms may include: Severe Pain, Trouble Swallowing or breathing, Nausea and Vomiting, Black Stools and Death. The above symptoms can indicate a CRE infection, however, symptoms may take a long time to surface, and they may vary widely in severity. As CRE is a potentially life-threatening infection, it is crucial that you contact your physician without delay if you believe you may have been infected..
