  • Causa
    Internal product testing conducted by welch allyn has identified fault conditions relating to electrical noise caused by proximal defibrillation activity that could, in rare instances, potentially interrupt propaq lt device operations. if this event were to occur, the device would either present an error screen instructing the user to restart the monitor, or could instead present a blank or white screen. either screen would be accompanied by one or more blinking led lights, and in either case, the issue would be resolved by restarting (power cycling) the monitor. this issue is more likely to occur at higher energies such as 5kv. there is no risk associated with this issue other than a very short delay in obtaining patient vital signs from the propaq lt while the device is restarted.
