    Recalling Organisation: GE Healthcare Limited, 8 Tangihua Street, Auckland 1010
  • Causa
    Ge healthcare has recently become aware of a potential safety issue due to ecg filter settings associated with the b20/b40 v1, b30 and b40 v2 patient monitors. the b20, b30 and b40 patient monitors set the ecg filter setting incorrectly if the monitor starts with impedance respiration set in the on position. instead of the user selected filter, an additional 0.5 hz high pass filter is used. the additional 0.5 hz high pass filter causes changes to the ecg waveform morphology and incorrect display of st values. the st-elevation measurement can be under estimated in this situation and therefore the treatment of the patient can be delayed.
