Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
GE Healthcare has recently become aware of a potential risk of monitor dropping associated with the monitor suspension of the Advantx system that may impact patient safety. It has been reported that suspensions manufactured after March 8, 1995 did not have the required thread locking agent applied to the setscrew, allowing the setscrew to back out over time, which can lead to the monitor dropping
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action Consignees were sent a GE Healthcare "Product Safety Notification" letter dated September 13, 2007. The letter was addressed to Hospital Administrators/Managers of Radiology/Radiologists. The letter described the Safety Issue, Affected Product, Safety Instructions, Corrective Action and Contact Information. The letter recommends that customers move the monitor suspension to an open area in the room where viewing is still possible and make sure to minimize the movement of the monitor until a Qualified GE Healthcare Field Engineer has inspected the suspension. The letter also states that a Qualified GE Healthcare Field Engineer will schedule a field visit to inspect the monitor suspension. Customers should contact their sales or service rep is they have any questions.
