  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has recently become aware of a potential safety issue with the btv switch of certain carestation 600 series anaesthesia systems. the btv switch could become difficult to move between mechanical ventilation and manual bag modes or remain in a position where it is not possible to ventilate the patient using the anaesthesia system. this issue could result in loss of patient ventilation potentially resulting in hypoxia. there have been no customer complaints or injuries reported as a result of this issue.
  • Acción
    GE Healthcare is advising users that the systems can continued to be used. However users should ensure back up ventilation, independent of the anaesthesia machine is available. GE is advising users all affected devices will be corrected.
