Intended purpose

The PEA POD® Infant Body Composition System ("PEA POD") is indicated for measuring the body mass

and estimating the body composition (i.e. percent and absolute amounts of fat and lean body mass) of

subjects between 1 and 8 kilograms. It is not intended for use with subjects requiring life support.

The PEA POD utilizes the principles of whole body densitometry to estimate the amount of fat and lean

tissue in the body. Whole body densitometry is based on the determination of body density by measuring

body mass and volume. Body mass (weight) is measured

using the PEA POD electronic scale and body volume is measured in the PEA POD test chamber. Once

body density is known, the subject's percentage and absolute amounts of fat and fat free mass are

automatically calculated using the principles of whole body densitometry.

Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics: Safety Communication - Increased Risk of Ruptures or Tears in the Aorta Blood Vessel in Certain Patients

Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics: Safety Communication - Increased Risk of Ruptures or Tears in the Aorta Blood Vessel in Certain Patients

FDA review found that fluoroquinolone antibiotics can increase the occurrence of rare but serious events of ruptures or tears in the main artery of the body, called the aorta. These tears, called aortic dissections, or ruptures of an aortic aneurysm can lead to dangerous bleeding or even death. They can occur with fluoroquinolones for systemic use given by mouth or through an injection.
