Cause 2
Action The firm's Customer Safety Advisory notice was mailed to all affected customers. The letter describes when the malfunction occurs and the potential risk. It also recommended that users collect corresponding evidence with spectral waveforms that would confirm or deny findings based on ECG, in order to avoid potential risks for misdiagnosis. The firm planned to exchange the faulty hardware component in the system. Customers would be contacted to schedule for the hardware exchange. Questions regarding this issue should be directed to the local service support person.
