  • Causa
    When the giraffe omnibed and giraffe incubator is powered "on" or there is a recovery from power failure, the oxygen set point or radiant heater set point (values that are entered by the clinician) may be overwritten due to a potential overwriting of stored information associated with the display printed circuit board.
  • Acción
    GE Healthcare is advising hospitals may continue to use the affect product, however, all set points must be confirmed when powering 'on' the Giraffe microenvironment or when recovering from a power failure event. A software update will be provided by GE Healthcare to correct the issue.
