I work for a small medical device manufacturing company. We have been asked for a UMDNS Code for 2 of our products and I've searched high and low and can't find codes specific to these products.

One of the products is our Anti-Fog Guard which is an anti-fog solution formulated, without alcohol, to provide excellent levels of anti-fog protection from distortion of endoscope glass optics. The solution is sterile but it's only purpose is anti-fog, not to sterilize the endoscope.

The other product is our Tracheal T-Tubes which are used as tracheal and stoma stents to aid in the rehabilitation of tracheal stenosis, to temporarily aid in laryngotracheal injuries and to support a reconstituted trachea.

I've also heard that these UMDNS Codes are only required for Class IIb products, is that true? Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

First off you can join ECRI (www.ecri.org) to access the UMDNS database (for free) – you just have to register. I found a number UMDNS for a Tracheal T-tube, but could not find anything for an anti-fog solution specifically. However, you can request a new term. I’m not including the T-tube number here as it could be construed as copyright.

As far as I am aware the codes are for all classes of medical devices - you will see when you get access. The database is basically an excel spreadsheet with the code number and basic definition in the separate columns.

Yurii,

I have deleted the other 2 multiple posts. Pls do not post the same question in multiple posts as you may not get directed responses.

Being a weekend here in the US, the activity is bit slow, so please be patient :)
