  • Causa
    Heartware, now a part of medtronic, is providing this letter to inform you of the potential for a transient interruption of the electrical connection between an hvad system power source (battery, ac adapter, or dc adapter) and the hvad controller that may result in unintended power switching to the secondary power source and/or unexpected audible tones (“beeping”). this interruption, which occurs while the power source remains physically connected, is due to oxidation of connecting surfaces between a power source connector and the controller’s power source socket, and typically lasts 1-2 seconds. unexpected beeping occurs when the interruption automatically resolves and may cause confusion to the patient or caregiver, as the controller may display sufficient battery capacity or ac/dc connectivity at the time of the audible tone. a critical battery alarm may also be momentarily displayed due to this phenomenon.
