I was trying to get a complete list of medical devices through openFDA, but then I came to realize that through that data set the list can never be complete, since I can only get devices involved in a event report.
If I run https://api.fda.gov/device/recall.json?count=openfda.device_name.exact I will never get, for example, a tongue depressor, if a tongue depressor has never been involved in a adverse event.
I was going to try by getting device's categories, such as https://api.fda.gov/device/classification.json?&count=medical_specialty_description and then running queries to get devices by
medical_specialty_description or similar field, but I'm still reading the site's documentation, trying to learn about heir API and lists of terms available for searches
How, if it is possible, can a get a list of medical devices permitted by the FDA by using openFDA?
