Action On 7/30/21, CardioQuip, issued a "Urgent Medical Device Correction" notification to affected consignees. The notification was provided online through CardioQuip's website and mailed letters. In addition to notifying consignees about the recall, the firm requested consignees take the following actions to reduce the risk of patient infection: 1. The optional Airflow Redirection Hood (MCH-10ARH) may be installed onto the Refrigeration Module(MCH-10RMS) as a potential mitigant to aerosolization. This device is attached overtop the Refrigeration Module and directs exhaust downwards, thereby redirecting potential aerosols downwards and away from the surgical field. Refer to the MCH Operator/Service Manual R3 2021 for installation instructions. Contact your local CardioQuip representative for assistance purchasing the optional Airflow Redirection Hood for your Refrigeration Module. 2.Ensure all modules and accessories, including the Airflow Redirection Hood and Refrigeration Module,are cleaned and disinfected at the same time as the MCH unit according to the Maintenance section on pg. 47 of the MCH Operator/Service Manual R3 2021. 3.Do NOT move modules or accessories between cooler-heater devices to prevent possible cross-contamination. 4.Please forward this notice to all device users and other parties within and outside your organizationthat need to be aware of this correction. 5.
