  • Causa
    It has recently become aware of a potential safety issue involving a momentary, self-correcting anesthetic agent bolus when using 21% oxygen on all aisys cs2 and upgraded aisys anesthesia devices. aisys cs2 anesthesia devices and upgraded aisys anesthesia devices deliver a momentary, self-correcting increase of the anesthetic agent, affecting the inhaled and exhaled concentrations for a short time, upon either of the following setting changes: a fresh gas setting change from 95%-25% oxygen to only air (21% oxygen). any total flow setting change while using 21% oxygen (air only). the momentary bolus of anesthetic agent will not occur with nitrous oxide as the carrier (balance) gas or if the oxygen concentration is set above 21% (air only). delivery of this momentary bolus of anesthetic agent is potentially hazardous because it could lead to hypotension in certain vulnerable pediatric patients when 21% oxygen (air only) is used. there have been no injuries re ported of this issue.
