Brief Summary:

The 12 categories in the GMDN (Global Medical Device Nomenclature) Code table are:
Code Term
01 Active implantable devices
02 Anaesthetic and respiratory devices
03 Dental devices
04 Electro-mechanical devices
05 Hospital hardware
06 In vitro diagnostic devices
07 Non-active implantable devices
08 Ophthalmic and optical devices
09 Reusable instruments
10 Single use devices
11 Technical aids for disabled persons
12 Diagnostic and therapeutic radiation devices

Preferred terms represent a type of device that has the same or similar intended purpose or common technology. Eg: forceps bone, forceps biopsy, forceps lung.

It is important to ensure that the definition of a preferred term accurately describes the device. If not an alternative search may be needed to find the most appropriate GMDN term for the device.

Class I devices that have a measuring function or are supplied sterile, Class IIa and Class IIb medical devices are identified and included on the ARTG by the preferred term.

Class III and Active Implantable Devices (AIMDs) are identified and included on the ARTG using the preferred terms and an additional unique product identifier. This additional identifier is not part of the GMDN Coding system and is issued by the manufacturer to describe a device and any variants of the device that provide for different patient anatomy.

Code : 45042
Term : Syringe, hypodermic, metered-delivery, retractable-needle
Definition : A device comprised of a graduated barrel with plunger and an attached retractable-needle designed to deliver (infuse) an accurate metered dose of a substance (e.g., medicine or drug) during an injection. The integral needle retraction mechanism (e.g., the needle may be retracted into the syringe of the barrel) prevents the needle from being exposed to protect users from potential injury.

Unfortunately, the database search is incomplete... 38161 Spinal Cage is not listed in there.

Anyone with a better link or a document they can send?

The excel file posted in another thread does not work either, it stops around 18172.

Thanks for helping.
