    Our outpatient adult area is also seeing this, but we have not seen it inpatient yet. Curious if this has come up for anyone else?

    Hi there-the adult outpatient area at our institution is experiencing several leaks with the Spiros devices (not at the connections- the leaks have been noted inside the seams of the device). The leaks started happening at the beginning of May.  We’ve only had one such leak in outpatient peds oncology.  Has anyone had any issues with Spiros recently?
