  • Causa
    Investigations conducted by philips subsequent to customer complaints have revealed that a small number of intellivue neuromuscular transmission (nmt) patient cables may contain a localised isolation defect in the shielding of the acceleration sensor housing. this manufacturing defect may cause localised heating due to an unintended current flow between the acceleration sensor housing attached to the patient thumb and the nmt stimulation electrode connection attached to the wrist of the same hand. using a defective nmt patient cable on a patient under anaesthesia who receives repeated nmt stimulations during a procedure may result in a localised skin burn of up to several millimetres in diameter.
  • Acción
    Philips is requesting customers to identify all affected cables by checking their inventory for NMT patient cables that bear the CE mark with the suffix "0366". The affected stock is to be removed from inventory and quarantined.
