  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has recently become aware that an incomplete seal can exist between the co2 absorber and the breathing circuit co2 bypass port assembly of the carestation 600 series systems. an incomplete seal can allow rebreathing of patient gases that have bypassed the co2 absorbent material and could result in unintended elevated levels of inspired co2 (fico2), which could lead to hypercarbia. to date, there have been no injuries reported as a result of this issue.
  • Acción
    GE Healthcare is advising users as an interim solution to increase the flow of fresh gas to reduce the volume of patient gas that is rebreathes if elevated FiCO2 levels are observed. If the FiCO2 levels cannot be adequately reduced with this action, users should consider switching to another anaesthesia delivery device. GE is releasing revised parts that minimise the likelihood of incomplete gas flow through the CO2 absorbent canister. GE will be in contact with affected customers to arrange for correction. Going forward, the updated parts will be included in the 12-month preventative maintenance replacement schedule for the Carestation 600 Series system.
