  • Causa
    Getinge has identified an issue where during no (nitric oxide) therapy, when a no cylinder runs nearly empty the system will indicate this by the "almost empty cylinder" icon. when the cylinder runs empty it will then trigger the alarm no cylinder 1 missing (or empty) or no cylinder 2 missing (or empty). this is indicated on the user interface by a crossed out cylinder icon. the system automatically shifts over to the other cylinder.Due to a pressure increase after the cylinder switch-over there are two possible issues identified:1. the cylinder status icon can change and erroneously indicate remaining gas in an empty no gas cylinder.2. the alarm “no cylinder 1 missing (or empty)” or “no cylinder 2 missing (or empty)” can be deactivatedif the empty no cylinder is not replaced, both no cylinders can run empty and cause a stop in no delivery. to date, there have been no reports of patient injury as a result of this issue.
