Manufacturer Reason
for Recall
Possible incomplete seal between the CO2 absorber and the breathing circuit CO2 bypass port assembly of the Carestation 600 Series systems.
FDA Determined
Cause 2
Action On approximately 10/11/2017 customers were notified of the recall via letter. Instructions include that if elevated FiCO2 is observed, to increase the flow of fresh gas to reduce the volume of patient gas that is rebreathed. If the FiCO2 cannot be adequately reduced with this action, consider switching to another anesthesia delivery device. GE Healthcare is planning to release revised parts that minimize the likelihood of incomplete gas flow through the CO2 absorbent canister. GE Healthcare will correct all affected devices by installing updated parts at no cost to the customer. The updated parts will be included in the 12-month preventative maintenance schedule for the Carestation 600 Series System.
