  • Acción
    GE Healthcare sent an Urgent Medical Device Correction letter on December 12, 2013 to all affected customers via certified letter to follow the safety instructions to: 1) Please follow all safety instructions in accordance with the instructions for use (IFU). 2) During installation, visually inspect the Vital Signs Breathing Circuits for any plugged ports. If 15mm or 22mm blue port caps are attached to any ports, please remove and discard. 3) Prior to use, the circuits should be pressure tested for leaks and flow tested for obstructions in accordance with the ventilator manufacturers specifications. The long-term solution is to update the instructions for the assembly operator and modify the circuit air test process by replacing the cap with a plug tethered to the workstation so the plug cannot be left on the circuit.
