    Under normal fan conditions, the safety valve opens in case of occlusion of the ventilation circuit and closes when this circuit is released. Occasionally, however, this valve may remain open, despite the release of the ventilation circuit. If the valve does not close again, the ventilator detects a disconnection of the circuit and triggers an audible alarm. The fan then stops working normally and even if the valve remains in the open position, the visual alarm indicating the valve opening does not appear and the message "circuit switched off" appears on the screen. In the event of equipment failure, Tyco Healthcare recommends the following: (1) Disconnect the patient from the 840 ventilator and, if necessary, ventilate the patient alternatively; (2) Turn off fan 840; (3) Turn on fan 840; (4) Select the "same patient" option and ensure that the fan parameters are set correctly. (5) Reconnect the patient to the ventilator 840. Anvisa is following this case in Brazil.
