  • Causa
    On the abl90 series analysers, the sample type “cord blood” has been changed into the two sample types “cord blood arterial” and “cord blood venous". this change took place with software version 3.1 mrs. despite the selected sample type being correctly displayed on the abl90 series analyser itself, the analyser will transmit the less specific sample type "cord blood" to a his/lis or middleware system. the described error may in a worst-case scenario lead to minor foetal hypoxic stress not being immediately recognised if the clinician was to use data from the his/lis or middleware system to determine treatment. this may cause a minor delay of necessary treatment of the newborn infant.
  • Acción
    Radiometer is advising operators and clinicians using the "cord blood" sample results from a HIS/LIS or a middleware system to determine treatment to be aware that "arterial" or “venous" is not transmitted from the Analysers. Users are further advised that they will be notified when the new software fix is available for installation.
