  • Causa
    The solar 8000m/i automatic view on alarm (avoa) feature will stop functioning if the patient monitor is discharged from the cic central station while a remote automatic bedside alarm view is currently being displayed on the solar. once this issue occurs, subsequent remote avoa alarms will not automatically appear on the left side of the solar display. in addition, the user interface menus on the discharged patient monitor will not function correctly. this may result in delayed treatment due to missed alarms that may be serious. this issue can be fixed by rebooting the solar 8000m/i.Parameter, waveforms and alarms associated with the patient directly connected to the solar 8000m/i patient monitor are not affected.
  • Acción
