  • Acción
    The firm sent an Urgent Device Correction letter dated 4/23/08, notifying customers of a situation that may occur with all models of STERRAD Sterilization Systems (100S, 50, 200, NX and 100NX). As a precaution, personnel should leave the room if mist is observed and avoid returning until the mist has cleared. ASP asks that customers circulate this letter to any STERRAD system users within their facility and also to the Chief Administrative Officer, the Director of Biomedical Engineering, Director of Materials Management and the Chief of Nursing. The letter instructs customers on what to do if they experience a filter failure - a) cancel the cycle if the sterilizer is running [and as always, do not use instruments from an incomplete cycle], b) leave the room, c) discontinue use of the STERRAD Sterilizer until the system is repaired. d) Personnel should avoid working in the room until the mist has cleared. The letter advises that ASP service will replace the sterilizer's filter and increase the frequency of filter changes by adjusting the Planned Maintenance (PM) schedule within the software on their STERRAD 100S and STERRAD NX Sterilizer. Per the notice, for each STERRAD Sterilizer model, ASP will do the following: a) STERRAD 200 Sterilizer - beginning April 28, 2008 through October 2008, ASP will install a new filter and gasket assembly at no charge. b) STERRAD NX Sterilizer - beginning April 28, 2008 through October 2008, ASP will install a new filter assembly at no charge and adjust the PM schedule to 650 cycles or 6 months (whichever occurs first). c) STERRAD 100S Sterilizer - beginning April 28, 2008 through October 2008, ASP will adjust the PM schedule to 750 cycles or 6 months (whichever occurs first). d) STERRAD 50 and 100NX Sterilizers - No adjustments to the oil mist filters or PM schedules are required at this time. PMs will be performed as currently scheduled. Information for MedWatch reporting is included in the letter.
