  • Causa
    Philips has identified a higher than expected incidence of speaker failures, which results in the loss of audible alarms when the device is in monitor mode. the failure of the speaker results in the audio capabilities of the speaker being degraded and/or no sound at all. operation in telemetry mode is unaffected by speaker failure until disconnected from the information center, either intentionally or unexpectedly.Monitor mode: the mx40 provides local patient monitoring for a period limited by its battery life. the device will annunciate audible & visual alarms using the speaker & display on the mx40 when the alarm conditions are triggered. extended use in this mode raises the risk of the speaker failing.Telemetry mode: all alarming is automatically managed at the information center. mx40 speaker volume is set to zero & the display is off unless the user enables monitor mode. the device will automatically switch to monitor mode if it loses connection to the telemetry network.

    A Philips Healthcare representative will contact customers with affected devices to arrange for shipment of a replacement unit. The replacement device is currently manufactured with the improved hardware speaker design and latest software (includes speaker detection capability and INOP messaging) release. An interim workaround is also given in the Customer Letter until such time as the replacement can be made.
