  • Causa
    Risk of early or unexpected loss of ventilation due to certain battery modules having a shorter than specified run time. the mhra is aware of an incident where a servo-i ventilator system used in conjunction with an affected battery module shut down unexpectedly. in most cases the servo-i ventilator system will provide the user with a series of visual warnings and audible alarms before ventilation is lost. however, due to earlier than expected battery depletion, there is a possibility that ventilation may be lost without the normal sequence of alarms. in the case of a sudden loss of ventilation due to premature battery depletion, the servo-i ventilator system will enter a state with valves open and an audible alarm will sound for a period of two minutes. immediate intervention will be required to preserve adequate patient ventilation. this situation will not arise when the servo-i ventilator system is being powered either from a mains outlet or by unaffected batteries.
