We hope that this report will put a face on the children who benefit every
day from medical devices, lend a voice to some of the challenges they face in
realizing the benefits of the devices, and give heart to those who want to make
things even better. In spirit, our report is for these children and their families.
As written, this report responds to a request from Congress to investigate
the questions described in the Summary and Chapter 1, and we have
aimed much of our analysis and recommendations at legislative and administrative
policymakers and those who advise them.
