  • Causa
    Maquet cardiopulmonary, as well as different competent national authorities, received isolated reports indicating bacterial contamination in the hcu 40 system water, including mycobacterial counts. maquet has not received any reports that a mycobacterial infection has been caused by a hcu 40. our investigations have shown that the currently published disinfection procedure of the hcu 40 system waterways (in the instructions for use) should be improved as to effectiveness against atypical mycobacteria. in this context, it is important to know that a hazard to the patient due to escape of microorganisms during the operation of the heating-cooling unit hcu 40 can be excluded with near absolute certainty. an independent testing institute also concluded that.
