  • Causa
    Siemens is informing customers of potential issue when both ports (serial and ethernet) are configured to transmit data, the data stream from one port could potentially affect the data stream from the other port. this could cause the message received by the lis (data management system) to include either: duplicate data, missing data and data from a different patient. the risk to health is limited to the extremely unlikely situation in which an analyte is switched between two patients. a transposed sodium, potassium, glucose, lactate, carboxyhemoglobin, methemoglobin, or neonatal bilirubin result may lead to a potential risk to health when the true value is critical.In all cases, the probability of occurrence is extremely unlikely due to the low frequency of the software issue and correlation with patient clinical presentation, history, and concurrent laboratory testing.
