  • Causa
    If an affected patient monitor has been powered on continuously for several months, any displayed waveforms will contain out-dated data and therefore fail to reflect the patient’s current condition. even if out-dated waveforms are displayed as a result of this problem, the monitor’s alarms and numeric displays of vital signs will continue to function as specified and accurately reflect current patient data. the length of time that a monitor must be powered on before the problem occurs depends on the selected wave speed. it ranges from 102 days (@50 mm/s) to 820 days (@ 6,25 mm/s), and is approximately 205 days at the monitor’s default wave speed of 25 mm/s. the monitor must be powered off in order to avoid this problem. simply placing it in stand-by mode is not sufficient. please note that connected devices, such as central monitors continue to display the correct wave data.
  • Acción
    Philips Healthcare is advising users to cycle the power on the affected devices on a monthly basis. A software upgrade will be implemented as a permanent correction.
