Action On 12/12/19, Urgent Field Safety Notifications were emailed to customers reinforcing user instructions. Use should be consistent with indications for use. Perform a functional test including alarms as described in the "Starting therapy" section in the User guide prior to each use. Press the power switch at the back of the device once to turn on the device. Check that the alarm sounds a test beep and the LEDs (visual indicator) for the alarm signal and the Alarm mute button flash. The firm is developing a device correction to address this issue. When this is available the firm will contact affected customers with specific actions at that time. Actions to be taken by healthcare professionals and users: The device is contraindicated in patients who are unable to endure more than brief interruptions in ventilation. It is important to assess changes in a patient's dependence on mechanical ventilation, particularly if their condition is progressive. If a patient is ventilator dependent, consider consulting their physician to discuss changing the patient to an appropriate device such as a life support device. Please continue to follow all patient and device information in the User and Clinical Guides, in particular, the following sections: Performing a functional test, Working with alarms, Internal battery, and Mobile use. As always, if there are any concerns regarding device behavior and operation, please contact your local customer service contact to organize a service. Actions to be taken by distributors and healthcare providers: Please forward this notice to your affected customers and physicians. For any questions, please call (855) 245-4640.
