Abstract: The objective of this work was to analyze the potential risks associated to the use of invasive mechanical ventilators located in the intensive-care unit (ICU) of the Institute of Respiratory Diseases from Mexico. The study was addressed by applying the Healthcare Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (HFMEA), identifying possible/potential failure modes and its effects, and determining the severity and the probability of occurrence for each of these failures. We determine the risk score, and if this score was 8 or higher, we proposed a preventive action in order to develop an action plan. We identify six types of risks (electrical, mechanical, due to medical gases, biological, catastrophic and those related to human factor) and 26 potential causes related with these risks. Base on the evidence acquired by the HFMEA, we proposed a contingency plan for those potential causes.
