  • Causa
    The purpose of this letter is to advise you that medtronic is issuing a field safety corrective action (fsca) for all its newport™ ht70 and newport™ ht70 plus ventilators following reports that the ventilator may, on rare occasion, reset spontaneously during normal operation without an accompanying alarm. while the reports indicated that patients required transfer to another ventilator, no patient injury or impairment has been reported. the reported incidence of the reset without alarm condition is approximately one (1) reset in every 7 million hours of ventilation. following the reset, the ventilator enters standby mode and will not resume ventilation without intervention. based on our internal review, including the low rate of incidence for this issue, medtronic is advising that you may continue to use your newport™ ht70 series ventilators in accordance with institutional policies and as described below. .
