Doctors are trying to save lives as doctors are attacked for using medical devices that they have not been given the necessary authorization to use.
The medical devices have been the focus of a series of attacks in the US that have been linked to the rise in Parkinson’s disease.
Health authorities in several states have said they will no longer allow doctors to use the devices.
Some experts have suggested doctors could be more inclined to stop using them in states where they are more prevalent.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is working to make medical devices more widely available to patients, but its latest guidance says the devices should not be used for any medical procedure unless a doctor has obtained the appropriate authorization.
In a statement, the agency said it was aware of the recent incidents and would continue to work with state and local health departments to improve the implementation of its guidelines.
Last year, the American Academy of Neurology said doctors should not use the gadgets because they could increase the risk of seizures.
A spokeswoman for the American College of Cardiology said the association is reviewing its position on medical devices.
In a letter to the AMA, the organization said its policy on medical device use is clear: “The primary purpose of such devices is to provide a diagnostic tool for physicians and patients to use in the setting of a patient’s condition.”
The AMA said it supports state efforts to restrict the use of these devices.
