The primary purpose of Failure Mode and Effects (FMEA) is to deliver reliability of medical intervention for a standardized process, such as installing pacemaker, performing heart surgery, patient intubation, replacing failed heart with a mechanical implant, discharging patients, admitting patients, monitoring patient condition and administering medication.
