  • Description:
    CDC has identified a need for increased vigilance for NTM infections by health departments, healthcare facilities, and individual healthcare providers. FDA recently issued a Safety Communication on Nontuberculous Mycobacterium Infections Associated with Heater-Cooler Devices that addresses issues regarding the proper use and maintenance of these devices. CDC has been working with the FDA and local and state health departments to investigate heater-cooler units associated with NTM infections and/or found to be contaminated with NTM. This CDC communication is to (a) raise awareness among health departments, healthcare facilities, and healthcare providers of the possible association between NTM infections and use of heater-cooler devices and (b) to provide guidance on identifying patients with infection.
