  • Causa
    When the avea ventilator develops a malfunction of the pressure transducer in the ventilator that measures the inspiratory or expiratory pressure of the circuit, a false alarm is initiated indicating an extended high ppeak or circuit occlusion depending on the specific failure mode within the pressure transducer. most reports of ext high ppeak or circuit occlusion alarms have been detected prior to use of the ventilator on a patient. if a malfunction occurs, a delay of initiation of ventilation may result. under these circumstances, the ventilator by design will alarm and cease ventilation. the safety valve will open allowing patients that can spontaneously breathe to do so. the reported rate of occurrence is very low with no reports of patient injury received to-date.
