  • Causa
    During manufacturing of the sterile, for patient-use, sensation and sensation plus iabc products, the ferrule cap is intended to be removed from the fiber-optic connection at the time of final packaging.Maquet have identified that during the packaging of some demonstration, fiber-optic sensation and sensation plus iabc units, the ferrule cap was not removed. if the fiber-optic connector on an affected non-sterile, non-patient use, demonstration unit is inserted into patient-use maquet cs300, cardiosave intra-aortic balloon pump (iabp) or iabps upgraded with a fiber-optic module, the cap may become dislodged and remain in the fiber-optic receptacle of the pump.If a pump unit is subsequently used with a clincal use fiber optic balloon catheter inserted into the mating connector, the catheter will notmake an electrical connection with the iabp. the catheter will not be recognised as a fiber optic catheter. the system will still be able to pump as a non fiber optic balloon.
