  • Acción
    GE Healthcare notified Biomedical/Clinical Engineering managers, Labor & Delivery/ NICU Nurse managers, Respiratory Therapy Managers and Directors of Risk Management by letter 04/02/2014. End users were advised that they may continue to use the system provided they follow the GE recommended actions: 1) If in use with a patient, turn off the Nellcor SpO2 function in the control panel and switch to an approved alternate form of SpO2 measurement. 2) Prior to using the affected GE warmer with the Nellcor SpO2 function, or resuming the use of this function with any patient, contact your hospital Bio-Med or qualified technician to check the Nellcor SpO2 alarm functionality using either an adult Nellcor SpO2 sensor or a Nellcor SpO2 simulator following the applicable instructions in the Appendix 3) If the test activates a Low Pulse Rate alarm, the user-adjusted Nellcor SpO2 alarm limits are functioning properly and the warmer can be placed back in clinical service. End users were also advised that alarm functionality must be re-checked following every service event requiring access to the internal electronics and during annual preventative maintenance, until revised software is installed. 4) If the test does NOT activate a Low Pulse Rate alarm, remove the warmer from clinical service and contact your local GE Healthcare Service Representative.
