  • Notas adicionales en la data
    When the lamps are positioned according to the Berchtold Instructions for Use - at a distance of at least one meter from the patient - there is no interference. When the lamps are positioned closer to the patient, the resulting EMI causes the StealthStation® AxiEM ™ or Fusion EM system to no longer track and display the "red status", which prevents navigation until the EMI is eliminated.
  • Causa
    Possibility of electromagnetic interference (emi) in the stealthstation s7 system, generated by the use of the berchtold f-generation lamps.
  • Acción
    Carefully follow the instructions for use of the product, paying attention to the minimum distance of 1 meter that must be maintained between the lamp and the patient. Check the Medtronic Alert Message at:
