Specifically, the impeller may not be properly seated on the blower motor shaft. This could subsequently cause the blower to cease functioning which would result in the failure of the V60 ventilator to deliver therapy to the patient due to the loss of ventilation. 197 units total (116 in the US) Z-2260-2012
