    • Please contact Teleflex at recalls@teleflex.com or 866-246-6990 if you plan to continue using affected lots of MAD Nasal intranasal devices.
    • There are no other suppliers of intranasal atomizers. The company has recommended the following alternatives to access routes: 1. For MAD Nasal alternatives, intranasal medication can be delivered using a syringe dropper or soaked pledget. If necessary, consider an alternate access route for drug delivery (buccal, IV, IM, PO, PR). 2. For MADomizer alternatives, intranasal medication can be delivered using a syringe dropper or soaked pledget. 3. For MADgic alternatives, a temporary alternative such as lidocaine gargles (viscous lidocaine), HurriCaine spray (benzocaine) can be used in delivering topical anesthetics.
